hope you can cling to days 26 and 27

Hi friends.  Here are two more cards for the breast cancer awareness challenges on SCS.

Challenge twenty-nine - mixing it up - mixed media.  Create a card using mixed media. 

I started with a piece of toilet paper tube covered with a used coffee filter and coated with gesso.  Then I die cut a bird (forest bird - memory box) in a piece of cardboard from a tissue box.  Using the negative piece as a stencil, I sponged two colors of blue paint through the stencil.  Once that was dry, I outlined the bird with a Pitt pen and sponged vintage photo distress ink around the edges.  I layered the piece on black and ballet blue card stock.  

The background was made using leaf & floral background stamp (hero arts).  I colored it with blue distress stains, spritzed it with water and stamped on white card stock.  I also edged this with vintage photo ink.  I punched some circles from black and ballet blue, cut them in half and attached them with silver brads.  Then I layered this on black and a ballet blue card base.  

I stamped the sentiment in black on white card stock, punched it out and sponged the edge, before tucking it underneath the main image.  

Challenge thirty - Honor Your Elders.  Make a card to honor your elders.  

I stamped the windmill (B&J art stamps) in jet black stazon ink on white card stock and layered it on black.  Then I created a background text on my computer and printed it.  I popped up the image on foam tape.

Thank you so much for visiting today.
