Sick anyone?

I have been struggling with a flu/cold since Christmas day... not too much fun but now it is just a nasty head cold. Have you seen these new vintage images from CHF...called "common cold"? There are quite a few fun ones and I thought I would pair it up with one of my favorite sentiments "suck it up". My mother in law gave me oregano oil in my stocking and this stuff is supposed to help with cold and flu. ONE POTENT drop under the tongue...it has me dancing a little but I have learned to "suck it up". I think I make that funny face the boy is making in the image too...

The copic coloring I did on this image was a little different. I used the palette technique and rubbed some colors (YG95, BG10) onto a transparency and then used my blender pen to pick up the color. This gave me a softer water color look while maintaining the tones of color that are in the patterned paper.

The fun paper is by Cosmo Cricket "The Boyfriend Collection" and I tweeked the journaling label a little and added "sick" with my dymo label gun.
