Here's my card for this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I used the sketch to put together a get well card in a spring color scheme.
I started out by creating the watercolored background panel. While the simple colorwashed panel dried, I die cut the umbrella and clouds from scraps of cardstock and patterned paper. After adhering the clouds to the watercolored panel, I used the raindrop stamp from the Umbrella set and some shimmery silver ink to stamp a bunch of raindrops beneath them. The umbrella was set on top of the drops, using foam tape for dimension. I The "under the weather" sentiment was stamped next to it in a shade of blue pigment ink that was just a bit darker than the blue on the background panel. After edging the finished panel with a strip of silver cardstock, I adhered it to a green card base to coordinate with the die cut umbrella.
