Hi everyone! It's Tuesday and it's time for another one of Mercy's FAB sketches!! I'm also giving you a little sneaky peeky at a brand new set that will be released this Friday by Verve! It's called Believe and it is the most beautiful and inspiring Breast Cancer set! October is Breast Cancer awareness month and I'm here to remind you to have your mammograms! I just had my first mammogram a couple weeks ago and am happy to report that it was all clear!
So here are a few details: I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White cardstock and then overstamped it with the cancer ribbon in Pretty In Pink. The stem for the flower was also stamped in Memento Black and then cut out with a Labels Four Nestabilities die. Before removing it from the die I sponged some Pretty in Pink around the edges! I stamped two different sized flowers and colored them in with Copics. I layered them and added a pink adhesive pearl to the center. The background looks black doesn't it? Well, it's not black, it's actually Smoky Shadow by PTI. I randomly stamped the largest flower from the set in Basic Gray (SU!) on the Smoky Shadow cs. It's subtle but so pretty IRL! A little stiching, ribbon and a few more pearls completed the card!
Now it's your turn to give this sketch a try! If you do participate, don't forget to link your card in the Mr. Linky box on Mercy's Blog! Also, don't forget to check out what the other Muse's did with this sketch:
