Get Well

Here is a Get Well card I made on behalf of my mother. She wanted something with a cow, to bring a smile. I looked on the Internet to find a clip art image that would work. I found a few; you'll probably see more cards like these on my blog in a near future.

I printed multiple copies of my selected image.

I went through my stash of scrap paper and pulled out the colours I wanted to use.

Using the Dotto Dots Dispenser I applied removable adhesive on the back of my image to glue them to the cardstocks.

I then trimmed out the part of the image I wanted in that specific colour. I did this for every part of the image.

I removed the top paper rubbing away the adhesive with the Rub & Remove Eraser; I inked the edges of each pieces and drew the details needed. I used chalks for the colours on the face and Opaques Adhesive Gems in Licorice for the eyes.

On the background I place a piece of scrap paper and sponged on some ink for the floor.

And here is the final look to my paper pieced get well card.

This week we are doing a Sketch challenge at Heart 2 Heart. Here is the sketch, we had the option to do the circle or rectangle variation.

I hoped for the rectangle variations. Here is the list of material I've used.

Z2153 Desert Sand

Cardstock/Pattern Paper:

1301 Bamboo
1385 White

I stamped my vases on Kraft cardstock in Sweet Leaf

I used a rubber brayer on white cardstock with Heavenly Blue and stamped my flowers in Crystal Blue.

I stamped the base of the blue piece with the mesh stamp from the Universal Background stamp set.

I adhere a gem in the center of the flower and along the circle and then I stamped the greeting in Desert Sand

And the final result .... Drum Roll..... 

I also place a vase on the inside
