This card features Bombshell Stamps' Rosie the Riveter Digi stamp. I think that Rosie is perfect for encouragement cards and for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Rosie was reduced and laser printed onto Neenah cardstock. Copic markers were used to color her.
My color scheme for this card is orange and red, per one of
the challenges for Splitcoast Stampers' Hope You Can Cling To Challenges,
which is a month-long event. People will be making cards and sending
them to a hospital that treats breast cancer patients and their
families. It's a great cause and you should check it out using the link
I didn't have patterned paper that matched the challenge color scheme and the way I colored Rosie, so I made my own by coloring black and white patterned paper! I use this trick often when I don't have patterned paper that works for me and I'm feeling particularly matchy-matchy.
I used white on black floral and music-printed heart patterned paper from the Irresistible 6x6 pad by Authentique. I colored the flowers and the hearts with Copic markers, as listed below. Red and white polka dotted paper, from the Lovely 6x6
pad by Authentique. The dots were originally white and the red didn't
quite match the red of Rosie's lips and nails. After coloring the red
paper with YR02, the red matched and the polka dots were orange. Gotta
love when the matchy matchy thing works out!
I also ended up coloring some musical notation patterned paper from theIrresistible 6x6 pad by Authentique before die-cutting it with Alterations flower dies. These four
flowers were stacked, a clear button was adhered to a circle punched
from my orange and red polka dot papers, and the flower embellishment
was stitched onto my card front.
Thanks for visiting today!
