Think Pink

Good Morning Crafty Friends and Followers

Well as we all know October is the month for Breast Cancer Awareness and there are quite a few challenge blogs which have challenges for this worthy cause.  This is such a terrible disease and has touched a lot of women in the world today.  I have had friends who have fought and won the battle and other's who have sadly passed away.   So today my card is for every woman who has been affected in one way or another by this. 

I have used Save the Pinks 2 by Sherri Baldy.  You can purchase this digi over at Scrapbook Stamp Society.


Recipe & Method

1.  A5 scalloped base card which I have layered Core'dinations pink card which has been embossed using M-Bossibilities Venetian.  I then distressed to reveal the colour underneath and using Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle iridescent pink sprayed over it.
2.  I printed off the image onto Stampgraphy card and using Spellbinder Fleur De Lis Rectangle die cut out.  I coloured the image using my Copics, have you noticed she has pink streaks! Using pink Sakura Glitter pen on her top, ribbon and eyebrows.  I then distressed around the image using Dew Drops Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid.
3.  I used Copic RV04 to colour in the letters to make the words HOPE and CURE and then sprayed with the above spray.
4.  From my stash I took 2 flourishes and sprayed them in Silver.  To finish off I have made the Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon and added a pink gem.


  
Before I finish I would like to let you all know that my friend Kay Rutter (Hougie Board fame) is bringing out a PINK Hougie board and every board that is sold a donation will be made to Breast Cancer Care. She will be appearing on Create and Craft at 8.00 am on the 12 October with the board. Inside there will be a leaflet all about Breast Cancer Care. 



Thank you for stopping by Today

Perfect card, with perfect sentiments for the cause concerned. I love my Hougie board and would highly recomend it, so I hope that anybody who hasn't got one will buy the Pink one when it's out and get a great crafting tool while supporting a worthy cause.

This is very sad, that in 21st century we still cannot fight effectively with cancer to cure everyone... Your card gives hope and it's beautiful. Supporting is one of the essential element during the illness. Thank you for joining us at the Celebrate the Occasion challenge and hope to see you back again. Hugs
