This week's Card Cupids Design Team (DT) requests asked me to make a second card. It was a last minute request, but I knew I could whip something together, especially when I realized the digital stamp I had was for breast cancer month.
I wanted to couple my DT creation with a couple of challenges - Scrapfit's Salt & Pepper challenge and More than Favors Breast Cancer Awareness challenge.
I have never gray scaled an image "myself", but I had a couple of grey copic markers in various shades and I decided to go for it. I really need to develop my copic coloring skills (there are some insanely talented artists out there that make magic out of this markers). I think Hope (the character's name) came out okay.
Clearly the only other color I added to this card was PINK.
I blessed that no one in my family is battling cancer (in general), let alone breast cancer. I have an aunt who kicked its butt years ago...so in her honor, I'm glad to have had the chance to make a card to inspire others to stay positive and fight the fight.
The adorable digital stamp is from Bugaboo Stamps - it's called Hope Fights.
I also got a super sweet message to join the Link Up for Pink blog party - I'm totally in! Such a great reason to create. I hope to put up something else for that blog.
