Hello! It's been a while. We were away on vacation and getting back in the stamping groove has been difficult. I've started sorting through the 200+ pictures I took and now I'm finally coloring again, but today I have a card I made before vacation. I wanted it to be received before I posted it. My friend was having cataract surgery and I felt this Whipper Snapper Get Well Dog with his bandaged eye would be fun to send.
Isn't that eye chart paper the most perfect thing? It's actually a reminder postcard sent by our ophthalmologist. I saved it a while back just in case I could upcycle it for a card, and then the ideal occasion came along. I didn't want to cover up too much and lose the effect, but it needed something so I made the skinny oval frame to define the dog's space.
Coloring is Copics on X-Press It Blending Card. A minimal color palette and the frame popped up helps set it apart from the busy background. It was a happy time creating this card!
I'll be back again on Wednesday. Take care till we meet again!
