Best Medicine

I have a weakness for this little girl- stamp by Heather Ellis for MFT - had the little girl with a bear for a while and just got the nurse one and thought I would pair it up.

Base card is real red with a piece of SU DSP. Stamped the sentiment on the bottom in black and wrapped real red satin ribbon as shown before adhering it down.

I stamped the 2 girls onto whisper white and colored it in using my cop*c markers. I also die cut the armchair- from cottage cuts die that I bought from a LSS from an old SU DSP (from sale-a-bration eons ago that I have 5 extra packs). Accented the creases with blue marker to create shade and mounted it with dimensionals to make it more 3D.

In the stamp the girl with the bear is actually standing but I cut her knees off and scalloped the skirt to make it look like she is sitting and added extra dimensionals to make her knee s pop up more under the bear whose legs ar -sorta- fold forward. Hard to see her but I hope you ge the idea. Just round off her knees at the top and you can make any standing figure sit!

Cool card - I actually had to look really hard to see where you 'doctored' her knees!
Love the little scene you created!

Did you ever think about selling your cards at the office or at a hospital gift shop??? They would be great!
