Get Well Soon

Paper piecing and Tsukineko's "GooseBumps" were the perfect combination for this card.  It was so much fun using the clear texture spray on all the “rainy” elements.

Finished Size:  3.75 x 5.5

After coloring and trimming all the pieces, I laid them on a protective surface.  I find using old pages from an AT-A-GLANCE calendar are perfect for spraying projects.  The 22 x 16-inch size allows several items to be spread out at once with enough additional space to protect my work surface.

Here you can see the wonderful textural coating on the slicker and boots.

And some more on the hat and umbrella. 

Many of the pieces were bended before attaching them to the card to add extra dimension.  The hat is created from two layered pieces with a small bit of dimensional foam underneath.  A small slit along the bear’s ear helps to tuck the piece into place.

For the extra raindrops and puddles, I unscrewed the cap and used the wand to dab the areas I wanted extra water.

Have a great day!
