Addicted to Stamps and More #291

Here it is, stampers.  Your favorite Addicted to Stamps and More challenge.

I wanted to try a new technique for my card - ink lifting. 
Step one.  Heat emboss the flowers from Altenew on Bristol cs.  Step two.  Ink the panel with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide.  Step three.  Apply water to the images to remove ink. Some I took away with the paint brush and some I blotted with paper towel.  Step four.  Stand back and be amazed. ;)  Step five.  Add sentiment.  I tripled layered the SSS die using shimmer cs for the top layer.

The Design Team has some wonderful cards for you to see over on the blog, hoping to inspire you to join the challenge.
