Sketch Challenge 586 | Rest & Recover

I’ve had this Feel Better stamp set in my stash for awhile now (sadly it’s retired). And the first time I colored it up when I just gotten it, I just couldn’t get it soft enough with my copic markers and I really didn’t like the result. But this time around I decided to try using my polychromos color pencils and I love how it came out.

The layout of the card is based on the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 586. And as the coloring ended being real soft I wanted to have an even softer background to make them stand out. So I used the smooching technique with two blues for the sky and two greens for the grass. I then splattered the same inks and a couple of darker in the same color scheme, so blues for the sky and greens for the grass. Both got some splatters of Ground Espresso as I love it. And finally I splattered some pearlescent watercolor just to get a little bit of glitter.

The sentiment is stamped in Vintage Timber Ink as I felt it would go great with the rest of the soft colors. And I finished the card by stamping the inside with the tissuebox and another sentiment. Hope you liked the card if you want to see the rest of my sketch challeges this year you can find them HERE.
