Sailboat Sympathy


One week ago, there was a horrible gas explosion in my home town. Yesterday one of the injured men, a 43-year-old father of little twins, finally died by his burnings. He was a passionate sailor and a sailing buddy to one of my neighbours. So my neighbour asked me to create a sympathy card with a sailing theme.
I used this wonderful old Stamps Happen stamp, but cut away the sentiment. I watercolored it with shades of grey and black, added the sentiment ("With heartfelt sympathy", by Stempelkeller) and a ribbon.

Hi Christiane - das ist eine absolut schöne und perfekt passende Karte für dieses tragische Ende. Das geht mir total unter die Haut :-( !!!!
Die arme Familie ....
