Once in a while I get a request for a sympathy card. I have such a struggle with these because I do not want to make them dark and dreary. I made this card about 3 months or so ago. I know I saw the idea somewhere but like usual I cannot remember where. I know I had to make some changes be cause not everyone has the same as everyone else. To do the top half I stamped the birds (with the blue one colored in with a marker) then I covered it with a cut out piece of scratch paper. I then stamped the background stamp over top to leave the rest open. Lots of sponging here!
