ATSM #111 - Anything Goes for Marie!!

Hello crafters, its time for your favorite challenge at Addicted to Stamps and more... ANYTHING GOES !! But this challenge is really special. We are doing a linky party for our sweet teamie Marie at ATCAS. She is such a sweet heart but these days she is not keeping well. Her leg is troubling her a lot. So, fabulous Kylie and Darnell master minded this idea to do a linky party to send our wishes and healing thoughts to herI so love the fact that we are such a close knit virtual family :)

The challenge is anything goes with an optional twist of Get well/ thinking of you card. For me sun/ sunshine/ sunflower are good indicators of get well wishes :) I hope this card and my wishes will bring a new sunshine and healing for Marie :) Get well soon honey!

This is what I created...
To make this card, I took a water color card stock panel, stamped the sunflower from STAMPlorations Bloom sketches in Distress ink. Next I took few more color like orange and brown of Distress ink to water color the sunflower. It is easy to water color with distress ink. I enjoyed doing this as this was the first time I tried water coloring after stamping the image. Anyways!! Next I did some green water color wash to indicate the leaves. Stamped the sentiment and adhered the card stock on a striped pattern paper :)  I am playing this for the following challenges  CAS(E) this sketch #90 Case Study Anniversary week #4 , at Case Study I was inpired by Jill Foster's card (Of course her card is way too good!!)Simon says Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes!
