Hi there and thank you for coming to visit our blog today 🙂
We are turning everything PINK this week in support of Breast Cancer Care’s BIG PINK fundraising event!
Our Design Team are getting ready for our BIG PINK BLOG HOP this Friday, October 16th, and have been creating some gorgeously PINK inspiration to inspire you to enter our PINK Show & Tell challenge this month… you will find more details HERE! We really hope you will join in, and help us raise as much as we can for this wonderful charity.
So here’s todays PINK inspiration for you…
For my inspiration piece today, I want to share a small canvas I made…
My center is the fabulous Butterfly INKognito.
Leave Your Fears Behind is embossed and cut apart for movement. I adore this powerful statement. It is wonderful!
Have a fabulous week and check back soon more more PINK fun! Kim
It’s the month of breast cancer awareness… I made a pink card that should signalize courage and strength! Cancer is a horrible disease and so many people are affected.
I used the Retro Dots Background stamp from Visible Image and embossed it with white embossing powder. The embossing acts as a resist to any kind of watercolor. I used Distress Inks to color the card.
For some more texture I used the swirl and the script stamp from the Revolution Set. I added two sentiments, first the one from the Cheshire Cat Set (Which way you go depends on where you want to be) and second “This is Me” from the This Is Me set.
The die cuts are from CAS-ual Fridays and Die-Namites dies. I embossed one of the branches with Distress Embossing Powder.
“This is Me” is stamped with Memento Luxe and embossed with clear embossing powder. I added some half beads and sequins to finish it up.
I used Dylusions mister inks on this card and the colours are very intense. But they fit the brief, which is to create in pink.
Enjoy your week, get crafty and show us what you have been up to!
Happy Days! Kim
As many of my regular visitors will know, I lost my lovely sister in law (more like a sister) Lynn to this terrible decease 4 years ago after a 6 year battle and many, many operations and treatments.
I stamped the Butterflies on a piece of card and coloured using the same inks as the background, then cut them out and glued them to the piece leaving the wings loose so they stand up, adding dimension. To finish off I stamped the sentiment from the Time After Time set and added it to the card along with some silver card candy.
Thank you so much Kim J, Susanne, Kim B and Karen for your fabulous work xxx
