Get Well Soon

A cute get well card may be just the thing to cheer up someone who’s been unwell for a bit…I just loved the super cute Dr Panda and Nurse Kitty in the stamps from the Hooray for Heroes stamp set by Clearly Besotted….
I started with a bright lime green card base and then die cut the top layer from watercolour cardstock using the stitched rectangle die…I then used a bit of green watercolour from a tube and a flat brush and just swiped it on the top layer a few times without re-applying the paint on the brush….
I coloured in and cut out the cat and panda image and then die cut a smaller rectangle using the stitched die and sponged some green distress ink on it before placing the cut out images on it…I also stamped the sentiment on this panel before adhering it to the top layer…
To embellish the card I have used a few green sequins…

Wish You The Most Beautiful Day

My colouring might be getting a bit better due to so much practice but I am not at all good at drawing or painting….but that doesn’t stop me from using various colouring mediums in my cards other than inks and/or markers…I have used very basic and cheap watercolours that came in a set of small tubes for creating the background of the cards I’m sharing today….there was absolutely no need for skill or practice and the result was pretty good….
I also got to practice stamping with the Altenew Beautiful Day flower and leaves layering stamps…I think the more I will practice,the better results I will get from these…

For both cards I have used a black card base and cut watercolour cardstock to size for the top layer…I then used the watercolour tubes and a flat paintbrush to paint lines on the top layer without picking anymore colour on the brush so that every line is a bit lighter than the one below it…

Then on a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the layering flowers and leaves and cut them out and placed them on the top layer….

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed it using white embossing powder….

To embellish the cards I have used Nuvo crystal drops…my friend Lois Wyche had tried out the Nuvo drops and the results were great…hopefully I can do a better job with these next time…
