Good morning!
Seems like whenever I need a Get Well card I don't have any made up ready to go. That's why I made this yesterday. With all the paper in my stash the possibilities for this quick card are endless!
The card base is Papertrey Inks white select. The dp layer is Cosmo Cricket. The wall (and, actually the sofa too) is from the Wanted Collection and the floor is the solid brown from the Wonderland collection. I added black lines and squiggles then some brown copic marker to make boards. I added that little strip of black to define the wall from the floor. As I said the sofa is paper by Cosmo Cricket, but if you click to see the large picture I think you can see how much it looks like fabric. So cool! I added shading to the image with a dark green copic marker then blended it a little with the blender. The doily is stamped separately, cut out and glued on. I cut a neat little nestabilities from my oval set to make his wall hanging. Added the ribbon for balance, but not sure I like it!
The is Edwin with bandages (poor little guy!) He is colored with my copic markers as follows:
Skin: E00, E02 and R20 fore cheeks
Shirt: G99, YG99
Hair Y21, E31 and E33
Bandages E21
Shorts, shoes: B41, B93, B95
The inside has a strip of the same dp as the couch and the sentiment "Feel Better Soon"
Couch and Edwin stamps available from the Magnolia US store: http://www.magnoliastamps.us/index.php (there is a Tilda with bandages, too!)
Thanks for stopping in!

Fantastic. Whatever you used on the floor looks really effective. Great card.
