Sea bed wishes

I need a get well card for a friend in hospital who lives near the sea, so instead of a sick-bed card, she is getting a sea-bed card!

The central square is masked, then sprayed with glimmermists.  The seaweed and shells are stamped with black versafine ink to get all the fine detail.  When dry I used distress inks and water to colour the seaweeds, and gold versacolor well-watered to paint over the shells so they slightly shimmer.  The sentiment is stamped in HeroArts Ombre ink.

Stamp: Kaisercraft
Sentiment stamp: Hero Arts
Pearls added from stash.

I am sure your friend loved this card. It is such a nice idea to not have a normal get well card, but to connect it to the ocean, which she likes. Thank you very much for taking part in our ATSM challenge. Creative regards from stempelfrida
