To Cheer You

Today I am sharing a pretty Get Well card that I made for my friend Pam after she was in a terrible car accident a couple of weeks ago. 

At the time that I made it I decided to use a Dreamweaver stencil for the background although I'm not sure you can tell where I used the stencil!

To create the background I used the Graduated Dot Stencil.
I scribbled Teal and Olive Spectrum Aqua Markers on my craft mat and then sprayed with water.
I lay the stencil on a panel of water color paper and then used a brush to add water color to the dots.

When I lifted the stencil I saw that the color had spread and didn't leave the perfect circles of the stencil but I liked the look so I used it for the background of my card.

For the flower set I used the new Perfectly Clear Stamp set, Bouquet for you.

I colored the image with my Spectrum Aqua Pens and fussy cut out all the pieces to create my get well bouquet.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!
We are all so excited about the Dreamweaver Stencils joining the Stampendous Family and will be sharing more Dreamweaver/Stampendous creations all week!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a pretty watercolor background! LOVE how it came out! Hoping Pam is feeling lots better by now!

Wow, that background is gorgeous! The watercolor makes it look more random than the stencil's pattern. Wonderful coloring on the bouquet. Thank you for adding your fabulous project to the Dreamweaver theme week!
