Ever make a get well card for yourself? I may just be the first to do such a bizarre thing. Stay with me. I’ll explain.
I have had the worst fall cold or flu or something! Nasty! Wednesday and Thursday I could barely function. Friday, a little better but not much.You know how it can be. Almost zero energy. To try and get myself going again, I decided to make a card. I pulled out a stamp on my desk and made this for me. No. I’m not really giving it to myself but I made it to make me happy. A little creative therapy before hauling myself back to bed. While I could have put any sentiment at all on it, I’m always in need of get well cards and this certainly fit my mood.
So…how am I doing? Slowly getting better each day, I think. Hopefully by tomorrow I can start making headway on my to do list and get caught up.
You may notice this is the same stamp I used a couple days ago for my CLASSroom post. Yes, I’d left it on my desk. The fun thing is that you can see how easy it is to get two different looks from the same stamp. I love stamps!
To create this clean one layer design, I first stamped the butterfly and masked it with Eclipse Tape. Then I simply inked my stamp with colors of Memento Dye Markers, “huffed” on it and stamped my image. I always love this simple technique.
Supplies: Solar White Cardstock by Neenah, Pear Tart, Rose Bud and Tangelo Memento Markers by Tsukineko, Basic Grey Butterflies and Wildflowers stamp set by Hero Arts, Everday Sayings Stamps set by Hero Arts, Jet Black Archival Ink by Ranger, brads, Eclipse Masking Tape
