Get Well Chicken Soup Card

I don't make too many get well cards but as my friends and family get older I guess I'll need to have a stash on hand.  Anyway, this one is for someone who is going in for a procedure.  I decided to make a humorous card to hopefully lift up her spirits.  Originally, I was planning to color the image with Copic pens, but the details were too small to avoid bleeding out.  I decided Derwent watercolor pencils (HM BFC) would be a better choice.  Unfortunately, I should have changed out the selected paper as marker paper does not handle watercolors very well.  It turned out okay and maybe made the card seem more wonky and the Distressed Ink (from HM Ben Franklin Crafts) I used on the background.  As a last minute change I tilted the scalloped image to add to the off centered look.  Hope the recipient doesn't think her eyes are playing tricks on her. LOL!
