Get Well Mum & Dad

I'm pretty certain what I have been suffering from the last week is allergies and a cold mixed together as the only thing that seems to be working for me at the moment is a concoction of both allergy meds, Tylenol and decongestants. Sickness seems to be spreading all over the world. My parents who are in Wales are not very well at the moment either. It's a worry for me being so far away from them. So I decided to try and cheer them up with a Get Well Card. I broke in my new set Pun Fun from Stampin' Up!

The colors I chose were Not Quite Navy and Tempting Turquoise. I couldn't find the combination on my color wheel but they seem to compliment one another pretty well. I also used a cute DP of water which suited the whale image that I chose to do. I watercolored the image using my watercolor pencils and my aquapainter. It's a fairly simple card and was embellished using a sparkly wavy ribbon. I decided to make one more of these card as you never know when someone will get sick. I embellished that using a pale blue stitched ribbon and square silver brads. I hope the Get Whale Soon sentiment makes them smile.
