Happy Saturday everyone! My card today is a really special one. I’m sure everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and a lot of people know someone that’s been affected by this disease. Well, my dearly departed grandmother died of breast cancer and this card makes me think of her. I think it’s fitting that I make a card in remembrance of her as I use to make all of my art projects for her when I was a kid. Never for my mom, always for my grandmother.
Personally, I really like the juxtaposition of the distressed edges and the elegance of the stamps and embellishments. And, I did something very new to me – blending inks. The mat with the damask and paisley background was the same shade as the inside mat. After heat embossing the images with white embossing powder, I used my blending tool and Memento Rose Bud and Angel pink to give the paper a worn effect.
I decided to enter my card into the design team call at My Creative Time. I have to say I look forward to her sneaky peek weeks more than Hello Thursday now! Plus, I’ve learned a lot from watching her videos, so I would be super thrilled to design for her.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day.
