Get Well Soon

A few weekends ago I went to the Stamping and Paper Arts Festival in Novi, Michigan put on by Heirloom Productions.  I met up with Sue from DRS Designs and helped with the Make n' Take project, which was a lot of fun.  I also walked around gathering ideas and doing lots of shopping myself!  One of the projects I was inspired by was stamping on vellum, coloring the image with water color pencils and blending the colors with a Dove Blender Pen.  Last year at the show I bought a package of vellum that I had yet to use, until now! It was a nice change to use something other than my Copic Markers. 
Here's my card using this technique. 

I created this Get Well card using stamps from DRS Designs.  I first stamped the Daffodil Frame image (104P) with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using Black Sparkle Embossing powder.  Next I used Watercolor EcoPencils by Faber-Castell to color in the image and then used my new Dove Blender pen to blend the colors. I adhered the image to white cardstock, cut it out, and matted it as shown. 

The background was stamped with the Polka Dot Background stamp (688P) with Versamark ink and I used "Get Well Soon" from the Blooming with Good Health Greeting (055G).  I simply embellished this card using a few brads and a turquoise organza ribbon to match.    I love the way the image looks a bit like stained glass.  I hope you like how this card turned out, I do!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
