Pink Twinks - Find A Cure

The pink continues! All this week the challenges on SCS are going PINK in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Today's Try a Technique Challenge was Penciled Pink Twinks - using watercolor pencils and twinkling H20's. I had to change it up a bit since I don't have Twinking H20's. I stamped my image the ribbon in SU's Pretty in Pink and then used my markers to shade some areas with Pixie Pink. I then used my aqua pen and some Perfect Pearls to paint over the stamped image. It worked great! So shimmery! I cut my stamped image out and then inked the edges in Basic Grey and Stamped the Find a Cure in Basic Grey as well. I then straightened the sentiment and stamped it repeatedly on the pretty in pink cs to create a unique patterned paper for my card! The scalloped piece is SEI patterned paper that I used the Threading Water punch on and then finished it off with some sheer "wedding" ribbon from HL and some little adhesive rhinestones - those two seem to be showing up on a lot of my projects! Oh and the cut out ribbon is popped up on dimensionals. I am giving this card to one of the secretaries at work. She is a BC survivor and one of the most awesome people I know! I used a sketch for the card from my new blogger friend Liz's blog Scrapbooking, Sketches and Life, oh my! It was a great sketch and she also created a 12x12 layout with the same design!
