Funky Fossil "Slimline Flower Border Stencil" card with "Kitcsch Flamingo" Distress Oxide Ink

The daughter of a friend of ours is very, very poorly in hospital.  At first the Doctor said it was tonsilitis but within a day she was in hospital with glandular fever.  The poor girl is only 13 and endured the pain of a lumber puncture yesterday, with the hospital checking her liver and heart too.  She is such a lovely girl and doesn't deserve to be in this situation, so my thoughts are with her and her parents.

This card is a middle of the night make as I coldn't sleep.  I used the brand new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink shade which was released last week called "Kitsch Flamingo", purchased from Art From The Heart, brayered on to a card to achieve a graduated look of colour. I then splattered the surface with water droplets by gently tapping a fan brush.

I used the Funky Fossil slimline "Flower Border" stencil for the decorative edge detail with "Picked Raspberry" Distress Oxide Ink.

I then stamped the "Thinking of you" sentiment, which is from the Funky Fossil "Small Print" stamp set in Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink.
