CP162: To Heal Your Heart

This is the card I made for the CardPatterns sketch challenge. Most of the color challenges I participated in this week were bright colors with a lot of saturated colors. I decided to switch things up with this sketch challenge.

I wanted to create a card that could be used for a sympathy card. I'm glad to say I don't have anyone to give it to. But, it's nice to have these on hand when the occasion arises. I put a lot of details in this card. I also used the Ranger Distress Inks for the first time on this card. I love how they blend together. Another technique on this card was cracked glass. This is one of my favorite distress techniques. It takes a bit of time since I don't have the UTEE. I used clear SU embossing powder. I think I did about 10 coats! It may have been overkill but I never know how much is needed to create the effect.
