Think PINK

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. SCS is hosting a month long event called Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT) which benefits those affected by breast cancer.

My friend Patricia is hosting a challenge during the HYCCT event. She asked me to make a sample card for her challenge – Think PINK.

And what a fun challenge it is! The idea is that you chose a word for each letter in PINK – the word can be a stamp image, a technique, a color, etc – and you use those items on a card.

Here is my PINK:
P = Paper Piecing
I = Ice Cream
N = Numbers
K = Kraft

I admit coming up with “I” words was harder than I thought, but once I hit ice cream, it was a done deal! The rest fell right into place.

The number paper is actually done using ink on an Impression Plate (generally referred to as the letterpress technique). Mine turned out a little messy – with ink hitting where it shouldn’t, but I found a tip to roll off some ink onto a non-stick sheet. I’ll definitely try that next time.

I think the rest of the card is pretty straight forward. The ice cream scoop is paper pieced. Also, I added a little shading to the ice cream cone using a Versamarker.

Thanks for taking a peek!
