Hang In There


A more fitting title it could not be, for I hung in there and got THE LAST ONE DONE!!!!

Yep, this is the ninth and final Get Well card for a hospital art project that has to have the theme "Healing"...

Of course I had to make a tent card to hang Tilda properly. I made the base out of plain white cardstock, then used my Cuttlebug to cut the opening and sentiment with Spellbinders dies. The patterned paper is GCD Studios Rose Colored Glasses Collection "Soft Vines" and "Light Stripe".

The flowers I purchased at Walmart, and I coloured the centers to match the paper and Tilda. The ribbon is years old, from Michaels. The top is held together with three silver grommets, two of which I threaded the ribbon through.

I always stamp Tilda or Edwin a few times to try out different colour schemes. This time I cut off her hands on the second stamp, coloured them in, and used them to layer her hands, making it look more realistic when holding the ribbon and flower.

Copics used:

Skin: E000, E00
Hair: E70, E71, E74
Clothes: RV91, RV93, RV95, C2

Tomorrow: The unveiling of the finished framed collage!

Another wonderful card for your hospital project. I am thrilled you made the deadline.
This card is so soft and calming - perfect for a get well card. Love the colours and ribbon and the way you did Tilda's hand to go over the ribbon so she looks like she is 'really' hanging on :o)
Hugs, Candy
