SUO Challenge #131
Get Well Wishes
I'm back with another great challenge from the SUO! Challenge Blog with a "Get Well" theme. The World of Dreams Stamp Set just really spoke to me for this challenge. I wanted a calm, understated card that would just impart a feeling of taking care of yourself with the goal of getting well.
To impart a feeling of calm and get well wishes, I wanted a watercolor feel for this card. To create a watercolor effect, I used the Watercolor paper and lightly spritzed the paper with water then I took another spritzer that was filled with Lost Lagoon Classic Ink and Rubbing Alcohol mixture then opened the spritzer bottle to use the sprayer portion to "flick" the ink onto the watercolor paper. Next, I stamped the plant background with Sahara Sand first then again with Tip Top Taupe. And… I lightly spritzed the watercolor paper one more time then set it aside to dry.
The background card front layer is Tip Top Taupe dry embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. Attached to the watercolor paper layer is a small strip of the Lost Lagoon In Color Designer Series Paper Stack. I love the little pop of Designer Series Paper Stack. The sentiment is stamped on a strip of Very Vanilla with Tip Top Taupe then punched with the banner punch. I accented the Watercolor Paper with Linen Thread wrapped around a few times and finished off with a Gold Metalic Button tied off with a piece of Linen Thread.
