Get well soon

Hi there!

My card today was inspired by the water-colour technique used in this card designed by the very talented Darlene DeVries,  as well as this fabulous sketch by Just Add Ink Sketch #264 :



It might be a little difficult to see, but the background of the base card has also been water-marked using Versa-Mark. It’s a little more layered than usual for me, but I love the colour combo, and am happy with the way it turned out!

I am also linking up to the following Challenges:
