Mommy, Hold Me

October 21, 2008

Well, this week is Pink Week over at Splicoast Stampers to tie in with October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Today's Color Challenge is to use Pink Pirouette (Pretty in Pink), Kiwi Kiss (Old Olive) and Chocolate Chip. Card I made today in entitled "Mommy, Hold Me". When we are happy, sad, unsure or feeling that we need someone to hold our hand and guide us through the happy and sad moments in life, there is no better person that your mom to reach out to. The flower image for this card is made with 2 stamps. I used the stem and leaves from the Flourish Flower stamp of Hero Arts and the Rose stamp from Inkadinkadoo. These were both stamped on white cs with Onyx Black Versafine. Rose was colored with 2 shades of pink Tombow markers and the leaf was colored with Old Olive ink using an aqua color brush. Cut the oval shape around the flower with an oval coluzzle and matted that on a pink oval cs then on to a chocolate chip scalloped oval cs. On each of the scallops I added some pink liquid pearls. I also distress the white oval edges by sponging with chocolate chip ink. I set this layers aside for the liquid pearls to dry out. In the meantime I cut the background layers of my card. Chocolate chip cs for the base of the card, then glue on top the pink cs from Basic Grey's Sugared, then another piece of chocolate chip cs and finally the DP of roses from the Sugared pad of Basic Grey. The edges of the lighter layers were distressed by sponging chocolate chip ink just on the very edge of the cs. I added some dots on the Chocolate chip layers with a Pink Souffle pen. And finally, used a sticker for the sentiment.
