One of our New England friends is under the weather, so I made a card for her last evening. Here 'tis.
The image was colored with copics some time ago, and I don't remember the stamp particulars. If anyone wants to know the name & mfg, I can hunt it up. Matts are snippets from other projects. The butterfly is the reverse side of the green matt paper(snippet), and was a small Cheery Lynn diecut, with tiny pink pearls for the body.
Diecut the image with a S/B square, sponged edged with DI Bundled sage. I got a blub up at the upper left corner, where I put the applicator down without starting from outside...(you know, the kind that you keep rubbing around on it, make it look worse...so I added the butterfly to camouflage it).
The green border was embossed with an Anna Griffith rose EF, also same paper as the matt...same side too.(more snippets)
Lilac ribbon was chosen as it is similar in color the flower petals (which really did need more contrast in their coloration...something I constantly work on...to get more contrast in my coloring).
The Get Well sentiment is from a new set of sentiments I found on my recent travels (Die_Versions, Everyday Complements). There are many sentiments on this die, so I thought it was worth the price. I diecut using anotherlarger snippet of white c/stock, colored with yellow green copic colors to bring out the greens in the card. I've learned to leave the diecut in the paper, makes it easier to color. So now I have plenty of other diecut sentiments to use later.
Thanks for popping by to visit, and have a wonderful afternoon. For myself, methinks I shall zip over the Pond to the Playground , to enter this card - and see if anybody is in the Duck Pond cooling off. Won't you come along? I've had an earlier quick peek, and there are some gorgeous cards; which need to be enjoyed more slowly. Some of those fab Ryn stamps have been used on some of the cards. If you're not familiar with Ryn stamps, oh my, you are definitely missing out on something wonderful. Hugs
