With Heartfelt Sympathy


Oh how I love getting inky!  I was out of town last week so I had a week of withdraw from my craft room :)  Yes, yes...I know I am weird, but seriously crafting is so relaxing to me.  So, I was so happy to craft and make a card for this weeks ColourQ challenge.  I've been getting my money's  worth out of these Verve flowers!  I decided to use the emboss resist technique to color these flowers using my Ranger Distress Inks.  They are off a bit from the colors in the inspiration, but I love the effect.  

Edited to add...I'm also linking this up to the Simon Says challenge to emboss!

Hope your Monday gets off to a fabulous start!
