Penny Black - Get Well Soon

The Penny Black Challenge this week is:

Get Well Soon

I've had this stamped image a while and I wanted to do something manly rather than girly, plus I have these lovely Dovecraft papers (Masculine 6 x 6) and have rarely used them. So, I coloured the image with watercolour paints and then worked the layout etc around that.

The image curled a little so it was not going to stick to the card without some severe persuasion, so decided to use some lovely brass eyelets to do the job for me. Plus they fitted in with the colour scheme! All the edges of everything have been inked with Whispers Chestnut ink and the sentiment stamp is on loan from Lynsey (thank you!)

So there you have it - a quick male get well card!
  • Backing papers: Dovecraft Masculine collection 6 x 6
  • Image: Penny Black coloured with watercolour paints
  • Eyelets: Dovecraft
  • Sentiment: Stamp on loan from Lynsey
