Get well soon

Decided to play around with week 2 Viva La Verve sketch over at SCS. Here's what I came up with.

Flower stamp is from Verve and water colored onto WC paper using distress markers and lots of water. I did use Versamark ink and clear embossing powder to heat "set" the flowers before colroing and spritzing with water.  Designer paper is from DCWV and the kraft packing paper is something that I recycled which I love the texture of. This whole card is a lesson in textures. 

The yellow back ground is done using a embossing plate from PTI and then dusting with wild honey distress ink with a sweeper brush to get the color I wanted. Sentiment stamp is from Kaisercraft.

Thanks for stopping by!

Gosh, this is one of those tough sketches! You did a beautiful job with it, Laurie! The colors are so soft and that piece of Kraft paper is such a perfect addition of texture! Great card :)
