So Sweet at TIOT

 Hi everyone, we are starting a new theme at Try It On Tuesday - 'Oh So Sweet!' and you will find that the Design Team have pretty, cute and sweet food images to show to you... and inspire you to take part we hope.

I made a card for my Sister In Law, she broke her ankle the other week and had been in a cast for a while when they found that it had not set correctly so she has been in hospital for an operation to straighten it. She is now going to be even longer with her cast on! She's putting on a brave face but I know she wants to be active.

I used a stencil and a mask to ink two different colours then added some yellow over both then dabbed a wet tissue through some sequin waste. I stamped the cat - a Lindsay Mason wooden rubber mounted stamp  and coloured it with watercolour pencils and a water brush. The sentiment (Crafty Individuals) was stamped then I used a pen to squiggle around it and then the whole card.

I hope you will find something 'Oh So Sweet' to join us at Try It On Tuesday this time. 

Thanks for looking, Chris

A lovely card To cheer your injured sister in law- how frustrating to need to have her ankle reset and prolong the healing time. I love your clean design, the subtle stencilling and doodled border as well as the cute cat!
So pleased to be a GD for TIOT this fortnight and thanks for your lovely comment.

Poor Kitty with his sore leg (and I hope you S-I-L gets mobile again soon!)
The stencilling in the background really makes the main image stand out - a great make Chris. x

Nice masking and stencilling job, and your doodling frames it all beautifully and is a great finishing touch.
