HYCCT1529 Thank Pink
Hi Again Friends!
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers’ “Hope You Can Cling To” HYCCT1529 Mary’s “Thank Pink” Challenge to create a thank you card using "pinks".
Just a reminder- the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges at Splitcoaststampers is a yearly card drive in October for the MD Anderson Cancer Center. The challenge is a daily one (with multiple challenges on a few of the days) for a total of 40 challenges in one month and the goal is not only to create the cards but also mail them to the center to be used by the patients undergoing treatment.
It is a very worthy card drive and some of my cards have been sent to friends that are struggling with cancer and the remainder will be sent to the center in early November.
For this fairly simple card, I decided to use the brand new Stampin' Up! October 15 My Paper Pumpkin exclusive stamp set, Blissful Bouquet along with a few other stamps to create my “Thank Pink” card.
I sure hope you have a chance to visit the HYCCT1529 gallery and possibly gather your supplies to join in on the fun for this worthwhile card drive!!
This Mixed Media card took a bit of time due to the masking, fussy-cutting and painting but it was a lot of fun to create!
First stamp the floral image, mask to add the additional flowers and leaves, color with markers and the AquaPainter™, add Frost White Shimmer Paint to the petals and fussy-cut one of the flowers for additional dimension.
Add splatter and script to the background, trim and mount to cardstock layers, add White Acrylic Paint to the flower stamen ends and Pearls to the flower centers to finish off the card.
*** FYI- I tried Pink Pirouette for the background splatter, but it stamped almost a light orange color-oops! Possibly my grunge stamp was not clean so I switched to Melon Mambo, stamping off once before applying to the card :-) ***
