Thankfully, I don't normally have a need for too many Get Well cards, but I did have to make one recently. There is a little more to this card than first meets the eye. Not only have I watercoloured it, but I have also made my own background stamp.
You know all that outline rubber that comes with your stamps? Don't throw it away!! If you favour woodmount stamps, then you are going to need a spare wood block to do this technique. But if you favour clearmount stamps, then you will be able to use your Clear block, as I have done:
clear mount case ready to use. This time I chose to use the more regular shapes, stuck them on a clear block and stamped in the same coloured ink as the background card.
1. Stamp Vivid Vases image in Black Staz On Ink on Watercolour Paper.
2. Using an Aqua Painter, water colour the vases and flowers. I also added a small shadow under each vase.
3. Adhere the watercolour artwork to a card stock mat, then adhere this piece to the bottom half of the card, leaving the stamped mosaic background visible.
