I can definitely recommend spending time immersed in crafts of some kind as an excellent way of keeping the mind off any aches and pains and of course it beats just sitting quietly and resting because there is an end result. I made several cards and also printed some decoupage sheets so that I could sit in the warm yesterday cutting them out (it was really cold here). Today is a beautiful sunny day and thanks to a kind friend who volunteered to drive me I've been to my patchwork group meeting where of course I received lots of advice such as 'taking more water with it' and so on!!
The card I'm sharing today was made using one of the flowers from Chocolate Baroque Punky Flowers set although this is more a fantasy flower than steampunk style (I'm not sure Steampunk style would fit for a sympathy card). Image was coloured with Polychromos pencils on watercolour paper and has been cut out using a Sizzix (Stampin'Up) die.Backing paper is by Prima the the smaller piece is from the scrap box.
