Today's challenge on Stampin' Up Only Challenges is to make a get well card. I've been having some trouble with my mojo, so I took a day off. Little Missy and I went to Minnewaska State Park for a swim-bike-swim-bike-swim. I dragged ~70 lbs. around on a 97 degree day... what was I thinking? Hence, LOTS of swimming. Hopefully, you think my break helped a little.
I love the colors of the samples on the cover of the new catalog, so I started there. After the main panel was created, I used a really old Mojo Monday sketch for the card.
I spent some time adding detail to the main image. I used two colors, Peach Parfait and Calypso Coral, directly on the stamp for the flowers. Once they were stamped, I highlighted some more with markers directly onto the paper. The image was spritzed with both Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.
The layout and rest of the elements ended up a little eclectic, but I still like it. Most of the time, I like something mainly because of the colors anyway. What do you think?
