One of my crafty friends, Lisa (YT: Maggie2005cupcake) underwent heart surgery yesterday so I wanted to create a card for her just to let her know I was thinking of her.
For the base I used kraft card stock and layered on a beautiful zentangle that my friend J. A. (YT: JuJu Pem) sent to me a couple years ago. I fussy cut out the main image from the zentangle to fit the base and added bits of Copic coloring (R11 and B00) to coordinate the zentangle flower with the C. C. Designs Pixie image that I Copic colored, paper pieced, Stickled, and fussy cut.
The following are the Copic colors I used:
Skin: E50, 51, and 53 with R30 for blush
Hair: E55, 57 and 59
Wings, flower hat, and underskirt: R20 and 30
Dandelion stem: YG11
Flower hat center: Y35
Then for the inside of the card, I just used a scrap patterned paper from my scrap box that seemed to have the same colors and used it to mat some white card stock for the “Get well soon!” sentiment and nurse chickie from the Lawn Fawn’s Get Well Soon stamp set. For the chick coloring, I used R39 for the cross, W1 for the hat, Y13 and 15 for the body and Y35 for the beak.
