Card 'Beterschap'

This is a 'get well soon'-card for a dear friend, who visited hospital recently.  I made this card with the  Penny Black stamp 4181K 'words like flowers'. I stamped the image with Ranger Archival Ink (waterproof, acid free and permanent) in the color sepia. Unfortunately the flowers of the stamp did not stamp perfectly, so I colored the heart of the flowers again with my chalk stamps (don't now the brand). I used a brush to color in the flowers, with several colors ranging from iceblue to violet/purples. Pleased with the effect, I decided to color in the whole card with the chalks. Then I added a few drops of homemade silver ink spray.  Next I added a few turquoise/silver stickers - flowers and butterflies, 'Beterschap' (= get well soon in dutch) - I once bougth in a sale. I glued the top of the card on a lilac mat and then on the turquoise card. Finally I drew a fine line with a Paper Mate purple Ink Joy pen 1.0 M.
On the inside of the card I glued also a lilac mat, and added some smaller flowers and a few butterflies, but made sure I had enough room on the mat to write a message to my friend.  This mat I also lined with the purple pen.
