Feel Better for the Friday Mashup !

Happy Tuesday!!! I'm still playing catch up with some projects. Our hostess this week at the Friday Mashup is Lisa and she created this fab sketch for us and she's asking us to create Get Well Cards. 

I decided to create a Feel Better card... I used the Sketch loosely you could say. I started with an image from Wild Rose Studio in the UK. This is a great image to practice coloring with. I stamped the image twice onto a piece of Whisper White card stock in Memento Black ink and then I colored the flower in with the Pumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight stampin' blendabilities markers. I colored the elephant image with some Copics. We weren't able to pre order any neutrals yet. 

This also gives you and idea of what Copics look like on Whisper White up against the blendabilties markers. If you click they image you'll get a bigger pix. I feel the blendabilities dry to more a matte look where the Copics have a brightness to them. Both blend great on Whisper White card stock. 

I cut the flower & elephant images out and paper pieced them onto another stamped image and created my panel. I stamped the sentiment from Sassy Salutations in Memento Black ink as well. My card base is Smokey Slate and then I added some Pumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight DSP. I left the edges of the Flower & elephant images sticking off the right side. 

I felt it needed a little extra pop, so I added some Wink of Stellar to the flower and the elephant ears & cheeks. Head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the other Design Team members created this week.. We hope you'll play along the challenge is open until tomorrow (Wed.) @ 6pm EST. 

Thanks for Stopping by!
