For The ER Docs


Happy Thursday! Hope you're staying safe and healthy during all of this craziness. My crafty friend's husband is an ER doctor, and this card is on its way to him (and his colleagues at the hospital):


I can't think of a more perfect sentiment for all of the healthcare workers out there who are fighting this fight! We so appreciate them!!!


To create the background I blended Scattered Straw and Barn Door Distress Oxide Inks. Then I splattered on some metallic gold watercolor. Love the results :)
