Clean and Simple Get Well Soon Card

A friend had an emergency operation recently.  Luckily she is now back home and slowly recuperating.  She loves pink, so I had to include it in her Get Well Soon card (shared with permission).  Wishing her a speedy recovery.

Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 13.8cm x 20cm. Mask off a section 4cm wide along the length 3cm up from the bottom using Clarity mask blanks.
Lay the A5 Floral Forest stencil over the top of the panel and blend Pink Sherbet Adirondack ink through it with a Clarity stencil brush.
Add a deeper tone top and bottom of the panel in the same manner using Raspberry Adirondack ink. Remove the masking.
Stamp Get Well Soon, using Word Chains 16, across the right hand side of the coloured panel in Thistle archival ink.
Add lines in burgundy micron pen along the top and the bottom edges of the panel.
To finish, mat the topper onto a piece of burgundy card (14.3cm x 20.5cm) and add to the front of an A5 hammered white card blank.
