Phindy's #46 Get Well
Hi, and the challenge over at Phindy's Place this week is to create a card or project using the theme of Get Well or Thinking of You and for my DT card I chose to use this cute mouse with the sniffles called 'Not So Hot'. I know, I can read your mind....you think it's 'Man 'Flu', LOL. I coloured my image with Promarkers, paper piecing his chair and footstool and also his comforting blanket. I kept the colour range rather 'manly' but tried to get across that he, (well, I am assuming it is a he, though maybe the cup & saucer is 'girly', LOL), is rather subdued and sorry for himself.
I have been meaning to try out a twisted easel style of card for a few weeks and as you can see, today was the day one escaped from my craft room though I used the lovely sketch over at Fuzzy Wuzzy to create the top element. I tore the edge of some of the papers, whilst I cut others though each layer was inked at the edges. For the lower half of the card I just matted a few matching layers but I made a tiny tissue box to retain the top part and I made the simple sentiment on the PC.
Hope you like it!
Challenges I am entering this card for:
Fuzzy Wuzzy - design layout (+animal)
Ooh-la-la - it's a man thing
Wags 'n' Whiskers - more than one fold
