OLW -48 - Sympathy card.

This weeks OLW card challenge  (Simplicity)  is to make a sympathy card without using flowers or trees. Now that is a challenge because to me flowers and trees mean peace and beauty. Well I made a card. I am not sure I really like it. I am leaving on a long trip on Monday and don't have much time to play. However since I won't be stamping for the next 3 weeks ( I will be in withdrawal ) I did want to participate this week. I have enjoyed looking at all the other creations. You are a talented group of women. The background stamp and paper is Stampin'Up. The sentiment is by Gina K. Colored with Copics.

Thanks for looking

Bleaching Flowers

I had a class this week and we were playing with bleach. It is an easy technique which I often forget about. Anyway my customers really liked it. This card was made with a Magenta stamp  Another stamp that I had to have and it got 'lost' in my supply.  I really like it and hope you do too. The card stock is Stampin'Up and the embossing folder is Quikcutz. The border is EK Success.

Thanks for looking.
