Get Well for my Uncle Bob!

Hello, I made this for my Uncle Bob, he's having a quadruple bypass on Friday! Now the story is that he first started to have pain or discomfort while lifting a canoe. So canoes make me think of birch bark. I used the sames steps for making faux wood, which can be found here in the resourses section at SCS. It's a fantastic tutorial by Kim. So to make the birch, I started with nautral white cs, & used going grey, basic grey & white craft ink. I blended it the dark grey too much, I think it needs some darker spots!

Anyway, I wanted a more manly get well card, since it's for my Uncle! I chose the colours by flipping through the dp first, and settled on Basic Greys Marrakech. The new Dusty Durango & retired Pacific point seemed to go good. I stamped Riley on white with noir black palette, and coloured with prisma colour pencils & oms. The thermometer is covered with crystal effects. I popped up his head. The pillow & comforter are dp. The footboard is the faux birch untextured! I don't often use chipboard, but I wanted to include big heart since he's having heart surgery, I think it turned out ok! I used faux leather to tie it on...the heart that is! lol
