I’ve had a small break from crafting as a few things were getting to me, who knew I would upset people by giving things away for free? Maybe I’m stepping on some toes or something. Well, it never hurts to recharge the ol’ batteries but now I’ve got to get those creative juices flowing again.
A family member had a Knee Op last week so I wanted to wish them well and this seemed so appropriate. I drew this little tortoise/turtle and matching sentiment which I used on my card and also made a circle combining both the image and sentiment to give you a choice of how to use it. I think it would look really cool if the circle was printed off twice and the outside sentiment was cut out and popped up on 3D foam pads as a raised frame similar to how I did in this post.
I coloured my tortoise/turtle with Copics adding little spots in a darker colour then added some shine with a Sakura glaze pen to his little eye, toe nails and shell and sponged the background with distress inks. My layout came from this weeks Decontructing Jen sketch and my colours came from The Play Date Cafe. Mint and Coral aren’t colours I would ordinarily think to use together but I think it actually works, this is why I am really enjoying taking part in challenges as it forces me to take more risks and try things I wouldn’t have on my own.
