Get Well Soon...

Good morning!
Wow, where did the weekend go?  I still think weekends should be 5 days, and weekdays the remaining two!  lol....
I'm here with a post today for Die-Versions.  I had a bit of messy fun with today's cards. Just a warning, this post is a bit photo heavy.  I needed two get well cards.  Both cards needed to be for folks that have had some major health issues to deal with, and both people love a good laugh.  I hope that these brought them a few giggles this week!  I will show you the finished cards first, followed by the instructions for the backgrounds on each card.

Each card uses the "Fence Background" Whispers DVW-314.  The background was cut only on for details!

To begin, die cut the Fence Background one time, and adhere to a piece of cardstock, using masking type tape, post it notes, whatever you have on hand.  I used some Eclipse masking tape.  Once the die is taped down, take some masking strips, and block off all but one stripe at a time.  Sponge some color onto the white space, move your strips, and repeat, until the piece is completely colored in.  I used a rainbow design - the color possibilities are endless.

Remove the strips that you originally placed on the Fence Background to hold it to your cardstock.

This is what you have.  1. You have the fence background, all ready to use on a project.  2. You have a beautifully colored piece of cardstock to coordinate with your background!
As you can see, in the first photo, I used the Fence Background, and punched a piece from the cardstock for the focal panel.  For the second card, I utilized the negative space from the first card as a frame around the fun image.

You can use any of your background dies this way!
The sentiment on the inside of the second card is a Great Impressions stamp that says "Hope you're back on your feet soon".  The recipient of the second card, is a lady named Pam.  Pam had to give up her job and income to take care of a son after back surgery, a daughter who is losing a battle to a terminal illness, and PAM broke her ankle last week!  She's totally white headed, nearing 70, and says "Well Crap" all the time.
This QKR Stampede digi image seemed perfect.  I drew the roll of toilet paper around the sentiment.

If you want to know what the inside sentiment is on the second card, you'll need to pop over to my blog.

Thanks for stopping by today!
We hope that you'll do some shopping at Die-Versions when in need of your own background dies, and please check out the Die-Versions blog - there is new inspiration nearly every day!
