today is wednesday! do you know that song? with a focus on soup on this specific day of the week, i just couldn't resist! so, welcome back for day four as we count down to the papertrey ink march release, and a new pieces of confetti stamp set, comfort food additions. i've been serving up a lot of ice cream so far this week, and now it's time for a little soup. as winter tries to hang on and the temperature changes back and forth, you might find yourself needing a get well card. while most of the sentiments in the additions set focus on the ice cream carton and celebrating, i've also included a few with the soup in mind. this old milk phrase kept popping in my head when i was creating with the soup can in november and i think it's a perfect match. when you're sick and you can't eat much else, what do you eat? soup - it does a body good! i wanted to create a fun get well card, one with more springtime colors to carry us into the new season, so i turned to andy warhol's pop art for inspiration. the first one (above) started with a single warhol inspired soup can, then i added more color and patterns similar to his aesthetic to pull it all together. i even created a cute tissue box out of a scrap of cardstock, stamped all over with the mini daisy from baby face, with a little piece of real tissue sticking out of it!
of course i had to recreate a small grid of soup can art while i was at it. while i liked the look of stamping directly on colored cardstock for the first card, i wanted a softer, more translucent look. so for these, i stamped the wrong side of the stamp in four light colors first for a shadow or halo of color. then i stamped the can image right over those, all in vivid quirky color pairs to resemble warhol's work. not only would this be great for a get well card as planned, but the sentiment can easily be changed to happy birthday or hello, or anything really. i think i need to make several of these to have on hand!
and last but not least, how about a bouquet of flowers to brighten your day? i stamped yet another warhol inspired can and filled it up with a bouquet of flowers from green thumb, sticking with a bright and cheerful color scheme. the complete sentiment is warm winter wishes - since there are more spring days than winter here lately, i thought i'd selectively ink warm wishes (separately) and leave winter behind for now. isn't it great? when you're finished eating the soup, repurpose the can!
these were so much fun to create - i hope you've enjoyed them! as usual, i'll be back tomorrow with another serving of yummy cards. until then, don't forget to visit nichole's blog to see what's in the spotlight - it's group sharing day so there are lots of links to follow. and melissa is sharing more with her sets too!
