Craft Your Passion: Think Pink Challenge # 130

Second post for today :)
Happy October, everyone! It's Monday and that means a brand new challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges. The theme this week is "Save the Hooters" to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness month. We want to see pink on your cards which can be either Breast Cancer Awareness related or have owls with pink.



I was able to work with this fabulous kit from The Cutting Cafe, one of our wonderful sponsors this month. This kit is amazing...it has so many digital images that can be mixed and matched. I chose to feature the sweet little owl, the pink ribbon, and the "Save the Hooters" sentiment.



The owl was printed on white cardstock and coloured with Prismacolor pencils. She was popped up on foam tape to add dimension. The ribbon was printed on pale pink patterned paper, cut out, and mounted on black cardstock to make it stand out on the paler still patterned background. The leaves and overlap on the ribbon were coloured with Prisma pencils. The ribbon's flowers were punched from pink cardstock, cupped with a stylus and pad, and stacked. Flat pearls were added to the center before adhering them over the flowers on the digital image.

The sentiment was printed on white cardstock, matted in black, and glued to a pink handcut banner. Two layers of cardstock back the BG paper and create contrast with the white card border. Pink faux stitching was added to the light pink background layer. Three flat back pearls finished off the top left corner and provided better balance to the card.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the projects at Craft Your Passion Challenges created by the rest of this awesome design team. They are sure to provide you with just the inspiration you need to join in this week. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I am linking this card up with the Link Up for Pink A Breast Cancer Awareness blog. Check out the beautiful entries there and consider entering your project there as well as Craft Your Passion.

Life is good; so is art.
