I’m back with a card that made me so happy to make! I get to share another one of my Hope You Can Cling To Challenge cards today. This one is for Patricia’s “Get Inked” challenge (HYCCT1421). Her inspiration is her mother and the dots they put on her every time she went for treatment so that the machines could be properly placed. So we are to create cards with dots and spots.
I started this card by cutting a template from a window sheet with the Hexagon Hive Framelit. Using that as a stencil, I sponged on Pink Pirouette ink moving the stencil as needed to get the right hexagons filled in. I then stamped on spots with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and Smoky Slate ink that had been stamped off. But that didn’t seem “spotty” enough (or special enough) so I pulled out some retired Moonlight Smooch Pearlized Ink and splattered it on the card by tapping the applicator with my bone folder. It adds such a pretty touch in person! My butterfly from Papillon Potpourri is stamped in Smoky Slate onto White Vellum and heat embossed with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder then punched with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. I added some Basic Pearls onto him to coordinate with the Pearl ink. FInally, I chose a sentiment from Work of Art. I love this sentiment but I think this will be particularly meaningful to someone at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. At least I hope so!
I’m so glad you stopped in today. I really hope you will join us in crafting for this wonderful cause. There is a new challenge every day this month so plenty of inspiration! For easy access to all the challenges, click here: Hope You Can Cling To Master Challenge Thread
