Get Well Card

I've owned a Crafter's Companion stamp set since last year's CK convention in April.  My children's nursery (17 years ago, yikes!) was Beatrix Potter design and I've loved her art every since.  Truthfully, I read the books when I was a kid.  Here's the details:
  • The image was stamped onto watercolor paper using brown Archival Ink.  
  • I colored the image with my Distress Markers using the watercoloring technique- Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo, Faded Jeans, Broken China, and Worn Lipstick.  
  • The patterned papers are all from Basic Grey's Sweet Threads.  It's hard to believe this paper has been in the stash for nearly three years.  Wow time flies.
  • The arrow comes from the Sweet Threads sticker page.  I stamped the sentiment in black Archival Ink with my ODBD Ornate Borders sentiment stamp
This beauty was sent to my grandma during her recovery from surgery.  It is sure to have brought a smile to her face.
