Good Friday

It just somehow seemed fitting on Good Friday to make a sympathy card. There is a sadness to this day. As I think about the price that was paid for the sin that I do, my heart weeps. But I am so grateful.

The different shades of black are from a challenge at CAS - colours and sketches. They seemed appropriate.

I used a watercolor wash of black, basic gray, and smokey slate for the background, then stamped in Stazon black and smokey slate. The butterfly is punched out of basic gray. Even though it is gray, it represents the hope of the resurrection that Sunday will bring! And what a hope!

I'm also entering this at The Friday Mashup, who have a sketch/ombre challenge.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your Good Friday mourning turns into Resurrection dancing!
