Get Well Wishes

| 2 min read

Here we are in February already, and it's starting to feel like Spring is just around the corner thank goodness. This week's project for Visible Image was inspired by that Spring feeling and the beautiful tulips I bought last week to cheer up my dear mum, who is recovering from knee surgery.

Tulips Get Well Card


I began with some watercolour card, on which I sprinkled Dinkles powders and spritzed with water.

step 1

I wanted to create some depth for my tulips to sit against, so I used Distress ink through the 'Leafy' stencil. First I used Twisted Citron and then I added another layer with Mowed Lawn.

step 2

Using an orange Versafine Clair ink (as this gives the best detail) I randomly stamped the background script stamp, and I also added the word 'Spring' in yellow to add a touch more interest.

step 3

Then using a stamping platform I added the small stem stamp in green, and stamped the 'Sketched Tulips' over the top.

step 4

I stamped the images again onto watercolour card, heat embossed and painted before fussy cutting them.

step 5

I coloured the small stems in the background with Posca pen before adhering the tulips.

Of course, as this card was inspired by my Mum, a 'get well' sentiment was a must! The 'Go To Words' stamp set had the perfect one. And no Spring flower garden is complete without a butterfly or two flitting around, so I added some from the gorgeous 'Wings of Change' set. This finished it off perfectly!
