Turtle & Co

Wow, we have been being sick at my house!  I got it first and can I say I don't remember ever being this ill ever.  The fevers of 102 really just wiped me out.  I am slowly getting back to normal, but my husband and both sons are still in the midst of it.

This is a fun get well card and $3 from every set sold goes to the Ronald McDonald House Charities so when you buy the set you really are helping others!

  • Card base is Always Artichoke with a front of Pear Pizzazz(retiring soon so stock up).
  • On the Pear Pizzazz front about 1" from the bottom I stamped the phrase using Always Artichoke. After stamping I ran it through the Big Shot in the Houndtooth Embossing folder, I think it gives the feel of a turtle shell.
  • I stamped the turtle on Watercolor Paper with Stazon.  I colored the image with Ink and an Aqua Painter using the same two greens as the paper. I used Baja Breeze as the shadow to keep the turtle from just floating on the paper.
  • I added small googly eyes over the stamped eyes as a fun detail. The image is layered on Always Artichoke.
I hope all of you are well and that no catches what we have here at my house!
