OK, so this cue can be interpreted in several ways. "Tear" can be a verb, as in to rip. Or "tear" can be a noun, as in a tear drop shed when you cry. I went with the noun and made a clean and simple sympathy card.
I simply colored in the flower stamp with LePlume markers, spritzed with water, and stamped. I added the sentiment in black dye ink on top of the flower once it had dried.
