Painted Trees

This was a card that was incredibly difficult to make, difficult to send and frankly difficult to blog. Do you blog sympathy cards you send? Something feels wrong about it. But I also love how it turned out, so... here it is on my blog.

I used Three Winter Trees from Hero Arts, stamped in Archival ink on Sticky Back Canvas. Then I added color using my old watercolor crayons - still love those things after all these years.

I was inspired by the tree on this website. And that's really all I can say about that.

Take care,


  1. Your card is perfect for this difficult circumstance.

  2. It's a perfect card. Nice of you to make and send it.

  3. It is absolutely beautiful, the nicest card I have seen in a long time x

  4. Beautiful card Libby - I often use trees on sympathy cards. i have no hesitation on sharing sympathy cards I send.

  5. It's beautiful and I'm sure appreciated.

  6. That's so beautiful. Totally get about hard to make and blog. I'm sure this card will mean a lot to the recipient. Sending a hug, Keren x

  7. I am glad that you shared this beautiful sympathy card, Libby. There are times when we need to make and send them, and making, sending, and even sharing them is part of *our* healing process--or I have found it so--as well as a communication to the grieving family. This is a keepsake and conveys an understanding of loss in the artwork you have chosen. It is beautiful.

  8. (Sorry if this is a second comment - I wish Google and Chrome would get on speaking terms already.)

    This is such a beautiful card. I'm sure the family will love it.

  9. Woe, love the background and texture effects


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
