Anybody sick?

Good morning. Lucky for me I don't know anybody who is sick, but if you are, here is a card for you. I made this card a while ago and am sharing it, because honestly, I don't have anything I've made in the last couple of days.

This is my first time ever using Prisma color pencils with Odorless Mineral Spirits (OMS). I had been reading about it and reading about it and I finally got some stuff. Actually, my hubby got a large container of it at the Lowe's. I bought the stumps at Michaels in their art section.

I thought the whole concept was neat and I enjoyed the process. I loved how easy it was to smooth the pencils out. I'm dying to try the new pencils over at Gina K. Designs, but I guess I'm just going to have to wait because I'm on a spending ban -GASP- but its gotta be done.

The stamp is a House of Mouse and is a stamped image I received in a Stamped Critter Swap that I joined over on the Cricut MB. The only issue I have with coloring sometimes is making it realistic, as in what does a bottle of aspirin look like and trying to get pencils to match. I have a decent supply of pencils but not HUGE.

In the end, I was pleased with the way it turned out. Its a large image that took up quite a bit of card so there wasn't a lot that I added to it, but as I am looking at it, wouldn't it be cute to add a 3D element to the tissue (like real tissue - I know I've seen that before somewhere) or the aspirin?

Thanks for stopping by and if you are sick, I hope you feel better soon!




Ok, the recipe is a bit vague since I don't have the card anymore.

Cardstock: Georgia Pacific, CTMH, Ink: CTMH Black, Stamps: House Mouse, Other: Scor-pal, SU! Label Punch, Prisma Pencils, OMS, Dew Drop equivalent
