Mix-Ability - Get Well Soon postcard drive

This week's Mix-Ability challenge is a postcard drive for one of our Internet Brands managers that is recovering from a bad kitchen accident. There was a secondary challenge to use a city theme... I missed that memo and went with a pretty floral matboard postcard instead.

I started with a lilac stamp set by Sheena Douglass from her Paint Fusion line... it looks like that line of stamps is still available from the UK. I sprinkled and spritzed some Colorburst and let it spread, then blotted with a paper towel. The leaves were painted with acrylic paint, and then I used the Colorburst again and diluted acrylic paint to shade the flowers.

I added some stamping to the background, a little more Colorburst (sprinkled and stamped), and embossed the sentiment over it all, using the MISTI for placement.

I hope you'll play along with us this week, and bring some joy to Alison's mailbox! You can find the challenge details HERE.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers while I was in Idaho! My appointments went very well - that was the easy part... next comes a 7 week detox, even-cleaner-than-before diet, and supplements to rebuild my organs and other systems that have been depleted by Lyme disease, co-infections, and adrenal fatigue.

 Woo hoo!
Thanks for stopping by!
