I had to make a card for a very special cousin who just had a hip operation. The surgery was scheduled and then postponed but now that I know she has finally been through it and survived it, I wanted to send her a card to wish her well on her recovery. I chose this delightful Pure Innocence image called Best Medicine from My Favourite Things and coloured her in Copics. The challenge this week at Copic Creations and at Crafts and Me is to use "blue/greens". Of course my sweet image doesn't really lend herself to colouring flowing folds in fabric and I didn't use more than two pens on her uniform but I am entering anyway. I also used the fabulous "sketch" at Sketch N Stash. I don't think there is any new stash on my card. I have used the image once before. My papers are DCWV Citrus stack - one of my recent favourite purchases. Papertake Weekly have a "bingo" with two set items and one free item. I chose "ribbon, button" and baker's twine from my stash.
Aside from the pretty papers and adorable image, my favourite part of this card is the sentiment. It was a freebie picked out of a bag at Ali Pally when purchasing some necessary stamps (that have never been inked) and I thought it was just perfect for this occasion.
If anyone out there can tell me what I'm doing wrong with my photography or uploading, I would really appreciate it. My posts are nearly always blurred (although this one isn't as bad as the last one). If you click on it to enlarge it though it's as clear as anything so I don't think I have camera shake. Usually my photos are in jpg format at 12 but I could use psd if that would be better. Any ideas?
