simply Sketched Sympathy

I have a really clean and simple Sympathy card to share with you and CAS Colours &Sketches. Once I'd found the stamp which felt right with the sketch it was a simple matter of stamping and colouring, I've even kept it one layer, how's that for simplicity?

The two important elements here are the diagonal and the reducing size. I've used Simply Sketched and Perfectly Preserved to create my card, I hope you can see the sketch

I used Promarkers to colour the image and my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get the positioning just right.

I'm not in need of a sympathy card, luckily, but I like to have a couple ready. I like this design very much, funny how sometimes it all just clicks so quickly into place. Usually I'm still working on my cards hours after I start!


  1. That's such a really clever interpretation of the sketch! Love it!

  2. Your stamp is perfect for the challenge and an elegant out of the box approach to the sketch too. Beautifully done. Hugs Bev x

  3. Very pretty card - love the leaf image. Clever use of the sketch!

  4. Clever take on the sketch, bit different from what the rest of us produced.

  5. Great to have a different take on the sketch - I love that lily of the valley (?) stamp, beautiful. It's a striking one layer card too and those aren't easy! Liz x

  6. This is such a different take on the sketch but I love it, it's really innovative. A beautiful sympathy card and as Liz said, such a stunning one layer card. Caro x


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
