Get Well Soon Set of Four!

Hello again,

I told you I'd had a wonderful un-interupted day of crafting! lol.

My Third Spesch Designer Stamp is going to have to wait, it's been beaten to the post by a set of four, yes that's right - FOUR - pretty get well soon cards. I think they would cheer me up if I were not feeling well.

I had printed this image (It was an internet freebie) four times on one sheet of white card and sat down to colour them in. I did four different colours to see what effect it would have and I loved all of them. A couple of them even have shimmery perfect pearls added to them. 
I have used water colour pencils to colour them and blended the colours with a Stampin Up blender pen. I'm not sure if you're supposed to use the blender pen with pencils, but I find it is an easier to control medium than using a water brush.

Here are some individual photos to show each one off.

I've possibly gone a little overboard with the rhinestone flourishes on this one, but I was having fun.

The paper is  DCWV scrapbooking stack and I've used corrugated board swiped with ink underneath.

 The butterfly on the paper inspired me to make a butterfly and It kinda evens up the layout a little.

The paper here is from Stampin Up and is one of my favourites.

 Perfect pearls on the flowers make them shine.

All the flowers are coloured with water colour pencils and the Stampin Up blender pen. I used a Versa Marker pen to ad spots that the perfect pearls would stick to and then spritzed it with a mini mister of water to set the powder.

I love the gold twine on this one.

It's also DCWV paper - the yellow in the same pack.

The sentiments I've used are from Kaiser - The Get Well Soon mini clear stamp set.

I actually stamped it in a lighter colour and then went over it with a marker to get the colours I wanted.

 This peach coloured card is my favourite.
The paper is from Kaiser and that's the last of the set that I bought. boo hoo. 
The ribbon from my stash matched perfectly, as did the little gemstones. That doesn't happen too often! 

I have also distressed some of the edges with ink on almost all of the cards, sometimes on the corrugations and other times around the frames - mostly Stampin Up colours.
