Fight Like a Girl!

This is my first post of the day - please scroll up to see my second post
Good morning friends and it's Monday again ... now, please own up - who took several days out of last week because I can't believe we're here again!
It's time for a new challenge over at Incy Wincy Designs and today our challenge theme is Girl Power!
Our sponsor this week is wonderful team at KennyK who have provided some lovely images for the DT girls to work with this week.
My card started life following a sketch on a challenge blog, but quickly took on a layout of it's own:

My card recipe is as follows:

  • Base Card - made from Centura Pearl in Snow White, cut, scored and folded to make a 15cm square card
  • Design Papers - from the Angel Mother set by by Summer at Summertime Designs. They are Pink Dots Paper, Polka Dots Paper, Striped Paper. I've managed to digitally mat and layer these papers, using a broad line in a toning colour, so my card is not so bulky!
  • Image - this totally feisty girl is called  Breast Cancer Fighter ( I wish I looked this good in my gym kit ... ah well, a girl has gotta to have some dreams!) and I have brought her to life using my Spectrum Noir Pens in the following colours:
    • Skin - FS2, FS3, PP5
    • Eyes - TN7
    • Plaster - EB2
    • Hair - GB1, GB3, GB4, GB5 (still not sure I'm getting hair right!)
    • Top - DR1, DR3
    • Joggers - GB8, GB10
    • Gloves - DR5, DR7
    • Trainers - True Black
    • Outline - IG1
  • Sentiments - by Debbie at (Crafty Pad Designs) and were amongst the Breast Cancer freebies she gave away on The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog in September to help my incredibly brave Crafty Pad Teamie Dawn raise a whole load of money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer
  • Twine - from my stash
Do check out the Incy Wincy Designs blog and see the other great cards celebrating Girl Power that have been created by my talented teamies and this week's Guest Designer (and former teamie) Annette.
