Challenge Title: It touches all of us
Hostess: pattyb (AKA Patty)
Keyword: HYCCT1114
Date: Friday, October 14, 2011

A few years ago a small town here in Michigan decided to “Turn the town Pink for Christmas.” Part of the kick off was a “Power of Pink Brunch” and the speaker that year was the young woman that happened to be Miss Michigan at the time. She did a little exercise that I’d like to share with you.
To start you need to imagine yourself in a room full of women, be it a stampin’ get together, a conference, a school reunion, church, or the workplace.
Now close your eyes while I ask some questions, imagine that room full of women and keep your eyes closed:

1) Everyone stand that has/had breast cancer
2) Stand if you’ve had a mother, aunt, sister, grandmother, or daughter touched by the disease.
Do you hear chairs shuffling around you?
3) Stand if you’ve had a neighbor, friend, school mate, or co-worker touched by the disease.

Now open your eyes and look around, what do you think you’ll see in this room full of women?
I imagine that every person in this room will be standing.
This is why SCS has Hope you can cling to …. It touches us all.

So my challenge to you is to make a pink collage! Use the photos below for inspiration, and do a collage in any of the following ways:

Traditional collage
Unique collage-the Serendipity technique!
Inchies collage

I think this is the toughest challenge yet! Not sure how well this one will turn out or how fitting it will be to the challenge but a card will be made.

Here is my grid card - I hope that counts as a collage!

Love collage! I might have to push myself and try one of these "new" techniques though! Thanks for the challenge.

Cook22 10-14-2011 05:54 AM

I surprised myself at how much I enjoyed the last collage challenge we had - it's not normally my style. So I'm looking forward to this :D. I've done serendipity by applying scraps of paper to a sheet of card for the background, instead of DTP, and then stamping over them - it's a fun technique and I might just try this one. Inking the background instead of starting with a paper collage would be a whole lot less messy and time-consuming.

Ksnurse 10-14-2011 06:32 AM

Ooooh....I love collage art....no way to mess it up cuz there aren't any rules....yep, my kind of art....I haven't ever seen that serendipity style though, will have to try that sometime...looks fun and messy....just my style...

newstampinaddict 10-14-2011 06:42 AM

Wow Patty! cool challenge. This will definitely be a stretch for me! Gonna put on the thinking cap.

muzbysmom 10-14-2011 06:52 AM

Got my card made but it's not uploading - wonder if it's Splitcoast or me????

It's Ree 10-14-2011 07:10 AM

Ooooo! A coincidence! :) I just bought a stamp set that I wanted to try something like this with. I wasn't sure where to start. Now, I have a direction. This will be new for me as well. Fun!

Sheri, if you want really messy serendipity, try tearing up scraps of paper and gluing them to a large sheet of card without a Xyron ;). And then do your random stamping etc. It's a great look, though - worth the mess; I have a few cards in my gallery using it.

Clownmom 10-14-2011 07:53 AM

This was definitely a challenge for me. Collages are not my forte, but I gave it a shot. Here's my card --

I finally got my card uploaded - I was having upload issues and thanks to Lydia I was able to get my picture to upload after rebooting my computer. Go figure! At any rate my quilted collage card can be found here:

I loved your Michigan story.We just did The Run For A Cure last week and the amount of people there was astounding and everyone of them was running for themselves, their families or friends. This awful disease touches so many people! Thank you for spreading the awareness .

ohmypaper! 10-14-2011 09:41 AM

I haven't been able to play much but I am writing down all the challenges in my notebook and when I have time I have been trying to make a card. Your inspirational message brought tears to my eyes!!!!! Thanks for hosting this challenge! I would love to try this one if I can make the time!!!

I picked roses with a silk rosette in the middle, for everyone touched by cancer. I added lots of flowers, and die cuts, and a few ribbons.

Wow thank you everyone for playing along with me today. I'm just getting home from work and it hasn't been the best day (or week for that matter) your words of hope, your art, and the stories you've shared literally brought the first smile of the day to my face!


Continue to play along with us and don't forget to get those cards in the mail!

stamp300 10-14-2011 03:05 PM

Interesting for me, but I'm making one too. Thanks for the challenge.

Here is my card: Copper Baroque by amyk3868 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Found the collage idea to be a challenge (guess that's what it supposed to be!!). I've never tried anything like this before and I used a bunch of colors I've never used before. Hope the final result looks okay. :)

pattyb 10-14-2011 03:13 PM

Don't be to worried about collage art, it can be simple or over the top, it can be CAS or very "artsy fartsy" BUT it can't be wrong!

Okay, clearly I don't read directions well...I make something that wasn't pink. Guess I'd better go back and try again! Oops.

amyk3868 10-14-2011 04:43 PM

Here's the card that I should have made the first time. I need to stop reading the directions first thing in the morning then making the card late in the afternoon!!! Sorry about the goof, I'm sending both versions of the card off to MD Anderson.
