Get Well

As I needed a quick get well card, I thought I may as well do one that will work for a challenge and this tulip die works so well for a card using 1/3 or less. The die came from the Netherlands and somewhere I have the name and brand, but I can’t find the magnet it lives on at the moment. I used a heavy white CS to cut the piece and then added Distress Oxides with a brush to give it colour after which I used some Distress glaze to add a small bit of polish. On the photo the colouring doesn’t look that good but in reality it is soft and pretty. I think the light in my craft room today isn’t very good for photography and it is a very dull rainy afternoon so poor light outside as well. I may get our electrician to add a small strip light for the shelf I use to do photographs. The sentiment is from an MFT set which has some lovely fonts for a few of the stamps. I may add a few embellishments to it prior to mailing but for the challenge I’ve left as is.

    1. Thanks. I suppose you are going into your Autumn as we head into spring? Its a rainy, misty and dreary day today here, but I can see daffodils coming into bloom soon. All we need is one day of warmth and a bit of sunshine.


  1. What a lovely die. Your coloring is great. I’m sure the recipient will enjoy the beautiful tulips. Yana mentioned in her post today that she’d found a florist that was open and had tulips – she bought a bunch for her and her mom to enjoy.

    1. We see tulips and daffodils in the stores already here and mine are going to bloom soon in the garden. I like seeing the rejuvenation.


    1. Thanks Golda. It worked great but if I do another I’ll make sure it is on watercolour paper as I’m sure the results will be even better.


  2. OMG this is so so pretty! LOVE all the tulips! (mine were just coming up, and the deer came through the other night and ate them all down to the ground … grrrr!) Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Perfectly CAS challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.
