Get Well Soon

I love when I have tried another thing and can mark it off my 'To do' list.

Not only have I done no line colouring but I have managed to use another stamp set that have been calling to me. Of course I need to continue my use of them but finally got them out of the PACKET and INKED them.

I masked off a panel and stamped the flowers and leaves then coloured with copics. I wasn't sure it would work at first but am happy with the end result. 

After colouring I added white gel pen for centres and some clear Wink of Stella that became a bit more than some when it decided to blob out on one flower but it ended up shared throughout all the flowers and has quite a nice little sparkle now. Also added some little clusters of three dots as I have seen done before and think its a great way to balance things out.

I finished off by adding two very thin cuts of black card stock and stamping this very cute 'Get well soon' sentiment (another never used before, new from Clearly Besotted 'Sweet Little Sentiments'.

All done (dying to add some gems but best not for the CAS look. Maybe later.

Okay all ready to go to:

Just scraping in under the wire, not a great way to show off a card, I know but

This is Anita's card and I took inspiration from the black strips, flowers between the black strips and the 'get well soon'. Love her card and enjoyed entering this challenge.

Would also like to enter:

Previously entered a card and then of course, silly me realised
 it wasn't relevant for this challenge because theres no stamping.
This card however is all stamping so thats cool.

Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
