Smeared Ink Weekly DT Project & Chromatic Craze Challenge #7

What I made for this weeks Smeared Ink Design Team project was a home made puzzle.
I also used this round's of Chromatic Craze colors Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Buckaroo Blue (retired), and Mellow Moss (retired) to color in my wonderful Smeared Ink heart image from the new set Monster Hearts.
Once again, I apologize for the Flash photo, may have to take another picture tomorrow in real light to see the colors a bit better.

This project will be also up over at the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  Please head over there to see more wonderful weekly inspiration from my fellow Smeared Ink Teammates.

Chromatic Craze Challenge #7 has great colors this round and please also stop to see the design teams wonderful creations and to enter your project.
