With Sympathy... A Watercolor Beauty...

Happy Happy Friday!!!  Today I am sharing a soft embossed and watercolored card with you here and on the Blog.  I love watercoloring, and when I recently got the new Cracked Pistachio Ink pad in I had to mix the two...

Supplies Used:
 Distress INK PADS
 Curly Butterfly 437
 With Sympathy 975

To create this card I began by heat embossing my butterfly image onto watercolored cardstock.  Next I smooshed some Distress inks onto my craft mat and water washed ( or waterboarded as I like to think of it, hehehe ) my paper.  I then dropped my colors in with a brush and let the water do it's magic.  I LOVE how soft and calm these colors are together.  Once my paper was dry I stamped my sentiment and added a strip of patterned paper down the side.  The slight touch of glitter in the embossing powder gives just enough shine that I didn't feel any embellishments were needed.

I am entering this into the following:
Love's Rubber Stamps: Add a Sentiment
 Dream Valley: Things With Wings
Sparkle and Sprinkle: I used Glitter Embossing Powder

Make sure you join us in this weeks Challenge: Things with Wings, and Happy Crafting!
