a Speedy Recovery...

'Get Well Soon Sassy' provided by Sassy Studio Designs
I decided I wanted the colors of the focal image to take center stage on this card - with lots of white space - but still follow the sketch [see below].  Now it looks TOO white to me... but maybe that is what is called for with this sick lady?  Pale, hospital white!
You will have to see the other DT's versions of this sketch - some creative ideas out there!

Aud Sentiment's 
Thursday Challenge is a Sketch:

You can submit up to 5 versions yourself for a chance at a prize from the sponsor - Sassy Studio Designs. INVENTORY
  • I used "Get well soon Sassy" - provided by Sassy Studio Designs.  If you are interested in this image, you can get it at the link above.
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to 3D her.  The layers were both glued & elevated with foam tape to achieve dimension.
  • I colored her skin, hair, ice bag and slippers with Copics and paper pieced the chair, blanket and her PJs.  
  • The sentiment is a Ginny H. Thursday FREEBIE at Aud Sentiments.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • Base CS and white layers are a new discovery for me - from Michael's I am using "Reflections"  [? I think that is the name - I will check!]  It is very heavy, smooth CS that is wonderful for a base card!  This is going to replace the Georgia Pacific I have been using for years!
  • The red matting layers and the pieces of DP used for paper piecing are all from stash.
  • A length of red grosgrain ribbon taped around the length of one layer.
  • Glossy Accents on the ice bag.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
