Pink Camo

Hi!  I'm here again today with another card I made for Splitcoast Stampers' Hope You Can Cling To campaign.  This one is called Fighting in Pink Camo, hosted by Lee, who asks us to show our strength in pink camo.  I remembered a technique from years ago at the Hero Arts flickr group, and used my Hydrangea stamp to make a kind of camouflage background.

SCS HYCCT Fighting in Pink Camo

I repeatedly stamped the flower head in Bubble Gum mid-tone ink on white cardstock.  Other supplies: sentiment from The Craft's Meow Hope Blooms, Charcoal mid-tone ink, Wplus9 Seasonal Sentiments die, pink cardstock

Thanks for visiting today;  I hope you can make a card or two to send along to the cancer patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center; AND you'll have a chance at some wonderful prizes if you post it to SplitCoast Stampers!

  8. This is beautiful. I just love the heart in the middle of the word. I went crazy with HYCCT last year but don't know that I'll be able to this year. What a great card drive, though.
