Thinking Pink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This week's demo challenge was two-fold: 1. Use pink on your project. 2. Make a card using something that wowed you in the past but you had forgotten all about. We've all done that, right? I chose Cracked Glass. You can find the instructions in Beate's great tutorial.
For this card, I used Beate's sketch from the previous week; I just love that 3-panel layout! The stamp set I used is Flores Suaves; it's from SU's new Spanish catalog, and it's gorgeous! I chose the tulip image and inked the stem with Basic Gray then stamped off once before inking the flower with Pink Pirouette. I stamped the bee with Basic Gray and then colored the wings with Pink Pirouette using an aquapainter.
SCS has a new monthly challenge called Cards for a Cause. Each month, they choose an organization that would love to receive your hand-crafted cards. SCS collects the cards and sends them to the organization. This month's recipient is Chemo Angels. You can learn more about how you can help in this thread.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Flores Suaves; Paper: Very Vanilla, Pink Pirouette, Basic Gray, Parisian Summer DSP; Ink: Pink Pirouette, Basic Gray, VersaMark; Accessories: aquapainter, Glassy Glaze EP, Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, Pink Pirouette striped grosgrain ribbon
Happy stamping!
