Hi there 🙂 This card makes me chuckle, as it’s probably the most honest spring themed card that I could ever make. Much as I love the warmer weather, and looking for the first bits of green and spring blooms, the sure harbinger of spring for me is – you got it – a nasty spring cold!!!! I don’t do colds well…the sniffles, and runny nose, and teary eyes and aches – makes me whine a bit more than perhaps I should, lol. This little sweetie, from Mo’s Digital Pencil, is the spirit of spring!!! I colored “Sick” up with my Copics, feeling a real kinship with her as I kept reaching for tissue between strokes of marker.
I dug around in my scrap bin and found some bright pieces of patterned paper that coordinated well with each other and the image, and edged them with some white gel pen details. I embossed a piece of lime green CS for an additional layer. I used the same green to die cut a sentiment multiple times, so, when they were glued together, it gave some nice dimension.
Besides some bright pink Nuvo drops, the only other embellishment was….pieces of tissue!! I was really smiling by the time this card was finished….as I hope the recipient will….if she can stop sneezing for long enough!!
