Masculine get well

Get well cards for men can be tricky, can't they? Floral ones are always welcome for women - especially if they are in hospital where flowers are generally no longer allowed - but can look a bit naff when sent to a man. However I recently got a brilliant set of stamps from Hampston Arts that come to the rescue every time.

I made the background by stamping the pill bottles repeatedly with Versamark ink and letting the watermark effect develop. The topper and sentiment are from the same stamp set - I coloured the gentleman with Promarkers. Why is it that those hospital gowns always have such a huge gap at the back? They can get awfully draughty!!!

I am sharing this with
