Sympathy Card

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! Lots of hearts on this sympathy card are physical reminders that the receiver is loved while they are mourning. The Scripture verse is found at Word Art Wednesday challenge blog and is a free digital to download. Yesterday I stencil-painted the 'scattered hearts' and had traced the heart shape onto the gray cardstock prior to brushing on the paint. Leftover paint on my foam brush was swirled around onto a scrap of the mid-gray cardstock. More design notes after the pics.
