hope you can cling to day 29

Hi friends.  October is almost over and that means there are only a couple more challenges for breast cancer awareness on SCS.  Here is the card I did today. 

Challenge thirty-two - subway art with heart.  A card with text that resembles subway art.

I wasn't sure what I was going to use for this challenge.  I wasn't sure I had any appropriate stamps, but after some searching, I remembered that natural beauty - one of my all time favorite SU sets - had the perfect stamp.  I stamped it on white with black archival ink and die cut it with a postage stamp die (spellbinders).  I've had this die for months and this is the first time I've used it.  Then I sponged the edges with ballet blue ink.  Blue, black, and white has always been one of my favorite color combinations, and it didn't fail me here.  I love how the black makes the words stand out. 

I stamped the French filigree background (SU) in bashful blue on the white card base.  Then I attached the piece of black and the main image on the black. 

I stamped flowers from the same stamp set on white with tuxedo black memento ink and colored them with copic markers.  I added some white gel pen highlights in the flower centers.  After positioning the flowers on the card, I added three punched black dots as faux brads. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

LOL...I used this set too! I figured it would be the easiest as it already had it worked into the image. Great minds think alike, right?!
