I find that sympathy and get well cards are some of the hardest cards for me to make. Even with that in mind, I do like the way this card turned out. It is a 9 by 6 inch card. A lot of people needed to sign this card, so I opted for a larger than usual size
Size: Vertical side fold 9 inch by 6 inch card
Extra Details: I began this card by making a card base from a whole sheet of water color paper. I used Distress Inks to stamp the solid vegetable images next. I made rows of veggies but didn’t worry about having them lined up or spaced perfectly. I added the leaves and details with more Distress inks. I added the sentiment, ants, and faces with Versa Fine ink. The cheek highlights I added with some white pigment ink. It shows better on some colors than others.
Once all of the veggies were dry, I added the dirt rows with brown Distress Inks. I smooshed the ink on an acrylic block and used a water brush to apply it to the cards. I used two shades of brown and varying amounts of water to create some dimension in the dirt rows. I used a blue ink to add a light wash of color to the sky.
