With Sympathy.....

I had to send out a sympathy card this week.  I watched this Penny Black video where Jill Foster stamped the image with a light colored ink first and then colored over the entire image in pencils.  I thought it was interesting, so I tried the technique for my card below:


I liked how it came out......just wish my picture was better. It was very overcast so I didn't have any natural sunlight.  I'm sure you can get the gist of it!


Thanks for your visit!
