A "Perfect Blend" to feel better

Stampin' UP!'s Perfect Blend is super for making lots of different cards.  I've used it here as a Get Well Card for the Less is More challenge this week which is one layer week.

I tried out the bleaching technique on this card and learnt loads.  All the things you shouldn't do!  But got there in the end.  

The card base is So Saffron.  I wanted a warm card for a Get Well.  I then stamped the cup from Stampin' Up!'s Perfect Blend in Basic Grey.  I bleached out the lid and label.  Then hunted around for a permanent marker to write Chicken Soup.  SU's Stampin' Write Markers disappeared before your very eyes!  Pretty cool to watch but not great for my card.  I coloured  in the rest of the cup with More Mustard Stampin' Write Marker.  Then added a single score line behind the cup to ground it.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Sassy Salutations and is stamped in Basic Grey. 

I do hope that you are feeling well and not in need of any chicken soup!  However a warming bowl of chicken soup would go down really well here in the North East of Scotland.  It's been heavy rain during the night and is very windy and cold.  Yesterday was lovely, out in the garden in T shirts.  Perhaps I should have looked at the weather report before doing my windows but my 14 year old son was looking for some pocket money and I wasn't going to pass up on the help!  He has long arms and can reach those hard places whereas Mum has to stand on a step! 

I hope it's not to cold and wild with you.  Keep cosy. xx

Edit:  I've just noticed Addictied to CAS is also Get Well this week so I'm popping it into there as well.

Great stuff Aileen, I love using bleach but the effects can vary enormously depending on the card used... some looks dreadful!
This looks fab!
Thanks so much

I really like this look Aillen-it kind of gives a sketchy feel to the card. Thanks for joining us at ATCAS
