Another Get Well Card- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!  

I love the colors from this week’s CQC95 ColourQ Challenge (isn't that owl adorable?:-)) so I decided to create another Get Well Card with the ColourQ colors and this week’s CCMC160 Sketch from Create with Connie andMary. 

Again, the Design Teams from both sites have so many inspirational projects not to mention all of the submissions- enough ideas for weeks! 

To create this card:

Use the Brayer to apply Early Espresso ink onto the smooth side of the Vintage Wallpaper EF and emboss a piece of Calypso Coral with the Big Shot.
 
Stamp the En Francais background stamp in Early Espresso onto a piece of Pool Party cardstock.  Trim to size and distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and by hand, sponge with Early Espresso ink.  

Use SU! Markers in Early Espresso, Island Indigo and Calypso Coral to color the floral image from Just Believe and stamp onto Whisper White.  Sponge the edges and mount onto Early Espresso.  

Layer the focal images and 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon.  

Color the sentiment with the Island Indigo and Early Espresso markers and stamp onto Whisper White.  Punch out with the Decorative Label Punch and “huff” onto the floral stamp to re-moisten the marker “ink”, stamp over the sentiment.  Sponge the edges with Early Espresso and mount onto another Decorative Label piece of Early Espresso (cut in half and edges trimmed to create a frame for the first label). 

Adhere to the card and attach the bow with a Mini Glue Dot.  Use the Color Spritzer Tool with an Early Espresso marker to further distress the background and focal images. 
Attach the pearls to finish off the card.  

Stamp Sets:   Just Believe, Sincere Sentiment, En Francais
Ink: Early Espresso, SU! Markers in Early Espresso, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso
Accessories:  Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper EF, 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon (retired), Pearls, Decorative Label Punch, Color Spritzer Tool, Distressing Tool, Sponge Daubers

Thanks again for visiting and thank you to those of you who have time to leave a comment- I love reading all all of them- they are such an encouragement to me :-)   

Have a great week stamping!
