I still had half the sheet of coloured card I'd made for yesterday's MIX21 challenge, so I used it as a panel for the current ODBD sketch challenge. A couple of weeks back when the challenge was to make an encouraging card, I'd wanted to make one for a friend whose first cancer operation was unsuccessful so she straight away had to have a mastectomy. But life here has been crazy, so I didn't get one made then. This will go in the post to her tomorrow.
A2 base. White embossed card matted on black.
My coloured panel was created as follows: when I was washing bright H2Os onto card for the MixAbility challenge, I was using a piece of kitchen towel (Bounty) to wipe the brush dry. It looked beautiful with all the colours on it, so I Mod-Podged it onto some white card, and when it was dry I brushed over it with gesso. After that was dry too, I embossed it.
For the oval panel I used Be Joyful and Scripture Series 3. The flowers are coloured with pencils, and have Stickles in the centres. I added some Liquid Pearls to the scallops, to tie in with the polka dotted ribbon. 3 black gems finished off the sketch. Image panel popped up on foam.

WOW! I LOVE this one too! Sabrina, this is gorgeous!!! So impressed, three cards-each so unique yet they all started the same way! The flowers pulling the colors from your background look perfect and I love how you have the dots, polka dots and gems in a dot shape. The verse is fantastic too! You aced this MIX!!!
This is absolutely gorgeous! What a transformation of a Bounty towel....love the blooms surrounding the scripture, too. This is such a dear promise from God's word; I will pray that it brings your friend special comfort.
