Embrace Your Art 30 Day Challenge

For the next 30 days I am participating in the Embrace Your Art 30 Day Challenge!! The intent of the challenge is to motivate yourself to create art more often, to love your art, to try new art, to create more, to love more, to laugh more.  To simply embrace your art, whatever it may be.  I invite you to do the same. More information is available by clicking HERE

Here is my Day 1 artwork:
I love making cards however when I have to make a sympathy card it means someone has passed :-( Not my favorite thing to do. 

I used the Fabulous You and Words of Comfort stamp sets. I stamped the image in chocolate ink. I colored the image using Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped in black ink. I sprayed gold mist to give it a little flair. 

I did some dry embossing and added bronze shimmer trim. The card stock used is White Daisy and Cashmere.... (Sorry the color isn't showing the card is white)...It came out the way I envisioned it. 

This is the inside of the card. I stamped a flower in the corner and the sentiment in the center coloring with Copics. 

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
