Freshly Made Sketches #330

Greetings! I found out yesterday that two former co-workers are having health issues. So, I felt the need to create a get well card. When I saw the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, I was inspired. Here's the sketch

Here's my card

I had created a distress oxide background for another card and had some left over. I used this for the horizontal strip. I used glossy cardstock and distress oxides (broken china, salty ocean, faded jeans) smooshed on an acrylic sheet and spritzed with water. I heat-set between layers. I found this super cute whale from The Alley Way's Sea Mates stamp set. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added color with Copic markers. I fussy cut the whale out. The sentiment is from Sunny Studio's Oceans of Joy stamp set. With a fine black marker, I dotted a water spout.

Thanks for stopping by
