Sympathy card

Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card for a co-worker.  Her mom passed away on Valentine's Day.  (That brought back memories of my dad's death 10 1/2 years ago, and Ray's mom died 13 years ago as well.)
My go-to set for sympathy cards is Lovely as a Tree.  I colored the image with watercolor crayons (Early Espresso, Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie), spritzed the stamp with water and stamped it on watercolor paper.  It didn't turn out quite right, so I spritzed a little more and stamped again.  It made a bit of a double image, but I think it turned out pretty well.   I added more Old Olive for the ground.
The cardbase is Crumb Cake stamped with images from French Foliage.  The ribbon (Riding Hood Red taffeta) and sentiment (Fundamental Phrases) are both retired.
Happy stamping!
