Hello … bonjour! Welcome to a wonderful new challenge at Time Out, where this fortnight we’re helping to focus attention on Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our theme is Breast Cancer Awareness and/or Friendship … with the optional twist of using pink and/or embossing … here’s where I went with it …
The CAS-ual Fridays flowers were stamped onto a watercolour card panel and heat embossed in silver. I coloured the background with Zigs, drawing out the colour from around the flowers … and when the panel was dry, I masked the flower heads and added a few silver splatters. The sentiment (also CAS-ual Fridays) was stamped and heat embossed onto a slip of vellum … which was then hand sewn onto a stitched scalloped frame with silver thread. I popped the frame up on foam tape over the watercolour panel and adhered it all onto the card base on a piece of craft foam. This is on it’s way to a friend who has had a tough time medically this year … it might even have arrived by now … hope it has before she sees this!
Our challenge this time round is being sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays. Many of you will know of the fundraising and other fabulous work that Michele (owner and breast cancer survivor) is doing to raise awareness of the importance of early detection in fighting breast cancer … and of her Calling All Sistahs campaign and monthly blog posts reminding all of us to do our own self exams. Michele will be offering the overall winner a $25 GC … and for a randomly drawn player who uses pink and embossing, there’ll be a prize package from the Calling All Sistahs collection. All the details are over at the Time Out blog, along with heaps of inspiration from our fantastic DT and our delightful and super talented Guest Designer, Coni from Which Craft (who you really do need to visit for a whole heap of inspiration and deliciousness … take a picnic … or pyjama’s … you’ll be a while!). Won’t you join us … we’d love to see you in the gallery!
