CDS Sneak Peek - Get Well Critters

For my TSG Blog Hop posts, please scroll down a bit.

I'm so excited for this month's release at Clear Dollar Stamps - available on November 1st.  Each of the illustrators has come up with great sets and it was so hard to choose which ones to work with.  But when I saw "Get Well Critters" from Laurie Wilson, I immediately knew I had to have it.  It's flu season and it's always nice to be able to give someone a card who isn't feeling well - just brightens their day to know someone is thinking of them.  There's also a companion set to this one that is full of great sentiments.  For my first project, I decided to make one of the tissue box covers that is over on SCS right now. The box was incredibly easy to make and I'm sure I'll be making more of them.  I've used My Mind's Eye DP (I ended up using two different patterns between the 4 sides because I didn't have enough of just one DP to do all 4 sides the same).  I've watercolored the turtle with Tombow Markers - have you noticed I'm trying to color with different mediums to see which one I like the best but I'll admit I'll always come back to my Tombows.

For my second card, I wanted to use the mouse - it was too cute to resist!  We all get boo-boos every now and then.... some more than others I think.  The image has been watercolored with my Tombow Markers and the DP is from Basic Grey - Olivia pack.
