Think Pink

Honoured to be asked back to Crafty Boots as a guest designer today I'm sharing some very special inspiration.

The current challenge is for Breast Cancer Awareness and is a Pink Challenge.

I've chosen to to a mixed media canvas for my inspiration piece.

Created with one Tim Holtz stencil I've used some modelling clay for the patchy bubble background.  I've the painted it with some gesso and then white acrylic paint.  The edges of the canvas have had some antique linen Tim Holtz distress ink applied to take away the start white look.

I've then created a flower ribbon the the shape of the symbol for breast cancer using pink and white flowers.

The silver butterflies and dragonflies I found on Amazon.   The THINK PINK sentiment was hand written in biro and doodled then cut out.  

Here are a few close up and angled pictures for you so you can see the flowers better.

Hope you like my inspiration and come and join the very special PINK challenge
