Calling All Sistahs Reminder

It's the 17th of the February, have you checked yourself lately?  Here is your monthly reminder to do your breast exams and schedule your yearly mammograms.  A few short minutes could save your life or give you peace of mind.  Every month I join the Encouragement Squad and Michele from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps to give you this reminder.   Here's my card for February.

Stamps: Hope Ribbon (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps)
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Bristol Cardstock (Strathmore) Basic Black (SU)
Accessories: Bluish Gold No 91, Deep Pink No 37 paint (Gansai Tambi) Harleen Stencil (Winnie & Walter) Ruffled Ribbon Fri-Die (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps) Sistahood Sparkle Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh for CFS)  White Embossing Powder (WOW)

I was in a watercolor mood when I made this card.  This card was actually created at the same time I made my card for the December reminder.  (clicky if you want to see that card)  I painted a piece of cardstock with a light wash, dried it and stamped/embossed the hope ribbon.  Next I die cut my ribbon and painted in some of the hearts with a drier brush using the same deep pink paint. 

I was left with a puddle of pink paint on my craft sheet, so I grabbed a stencil and another piece of cardstock.  I dropped the stencil into the paint and swirled around to pick up some of that paint.  I then laid it onto another piece of cardstock and spritzed it with water to get the paint off the stencil and onto the background. I removed the stencil and splattered with some gold paint, then finished the card off by adding my ribbon, some sistahood sequins and a black strip sentiment.  Such a fun use of my "leftovers".  :)  

Be sure to head on over to the Calling All Sistahs blog to see what the rest of the team has created and come back tomorrow for a new encouragement challenge!
