Get well soon

I do enjoy working from a good sketch and this one by Cecile is from Freshly Made Sketches.

I stamped the background using a stamp from Stamplorations, and used less ink and the secondary stamping to make the colours lighter nearer to the top. I still thought that the colours were a littl too intense so I tore a piece of vellum and added it over the top of the stamping.
The gently coloured die cuts are by Gummiapan and the sentiment by Poppy Stamps.
Daisies in a vase for a get well card always reminds me of You've Got Mail... one of my all time favourite films!



  1. This is lovely, Chrissie. I've just been looking at this sketch myself. I rarely use sketches, but my cards are so flat and dull just lately that I need something to try and give them some oomph! Jo x

  2. I love how vellum always saves the day! It adds some great texture behind the vase. I love this! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. I like the ombre look of the background stamping and adding the vellum like this is an inspired idea. And what a sweet little vase of flowers, perfect for a 'get well card'. Thanks for joining us at CASoogy x

  4. This is so pretty, I love the muted colours and that amazing die. Beautifully put together, as always xx

  5. Love your beautiful vase of daisies, Chrissie. Agree ... You've Got Mail inspired card. :) I can't tell you how many times I have watched that film! :) I love your swipes of colour in the background. How clever to add a little vellum to mute the colours a bit. Always learning tips from you! xx

  6. This daisy bouquet is absolutely lovely and I love how you created the background with the piece of vellum over the color patches.. Thanks so much for joining in at Freshly Made Sketches this week.
