Color Throwdown challenge | Get Well Soon Card

This is one of those cards that you don't need a whole lot, hopefully, but it is always good to have on hand. Maybe a friend breaks an arm or a co-worker sprang an ankle; this will let them know you are thinking of them while they recover.

This is for the Color Throwdown challenge #480. Find all the details and other entries here. <------click

I used the Bo Bunny off the wall stamp that looks like a brick pattern to make the background. I first stamped it a Simon Says Stamp Slate Gray ink. I did not try to make it a perfect background but I did use my Tim Holtz stamp platform to get even pressure. Then laid down some various Copic sketch markers in purple and cool gray shades to add more texture and contrast to the brick pattern. I ran the brick pattern through my big shot with the largest wonky rectangles die and then cut off all the stitching which left an interesting shape and more of the dark gray cardstock shows through.

I stamped 3 of the larger comic book bubbles and colored the insides in with shades of green Copics. I wanted to keep each one slightly different so the shading varies from bubble to bubble. I list all Copics used down below.
