cQc # 235 ~ Get Well Soon ~

Today is Thursday, but for me it's Friday.  Being a shift worker means that your days are always mixed up.  After a long and busy evening, I happened to get a call back at 2:30 am.  Its a horrible time to wake, your groggy and nauseous, and along with that I have a 45 minute drive both ways; yuk, I know.  So, today I have to do it all over again, minus the callback (I hope).

Today's card was inspired by a card from the CardMaker magazine. The spring issue features the ever trending watercolor technique.  I began by using some Gelato markers that somewhat matched the colour scheme over at the ColourQ blog.  I simply cut a small chunk off onto my craft mat, spritzed some water onto it then used a paintbrush to apply onto my watercolour paper mat. While that was drying I pulled out some Coastal Cabana, Primrose Petals and Calypso Coral paper, embossed and die cut flowers from the Secret Garden set.  Once dried, I adhered the die cut flowers, leaf punches, some Gold washi tape, a small Coastal Cabana strip, a stamped sentiment and sequins onto the watercolour mat and adhered the whole thing onto a thick white paper card base.
