Challenge Title: Create A Cure
Hostess: Scrapaholic007 (Shannon)
Keyword: HYCCT1527BONUS
Date: Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Oh, how I'd love to cure the world of this horrible disease.

Let's do the next best thing! Create and send our friends at MD Anderson Cancer Center a "Cured" Card.

Your challenge is to create a stunning background for your card using the salting technique with watercolors or ink. Through my sample making, I discovered that any type of salt creates a beautiful effect. Regular table salt leaves the paper textured with little hints of shimmer. The large rock salt granules created interesting patterns and the paper is left with a beautiful shimmer to it.
Here's a short video my 10 year old daughter and I made for you to see how easy it is to create these gorgeous backgrounds.

I hope you'll give this challenge a try and enjoy it!
Fair Warning, I found it addictive!
Thanks for playing! I can't wait to see what you all create for this challenge.

I am so excited for this day! I deeply believe the cards we create and send to MD Anderson make an enormous impact. Not only on the patients and their families, but on the staff and volunteers there as well. These cards carry encouragement, love, compassion, reassurance and validation to those that see them.
Over the years participating in these challenges have been so rewarding to my own soul, I find myself filled with anticipation throughout the year for the next one. When the opportunity arose to host my first HYCCT challenge I jumped at it with excitement and nerves all bundled up together. I'm so proud to be able to inspire the theme for this challenge but mostly I'm proud to be among a plethora of amazingly generous and talented artist. You all are so inspiring and kind! You are all the reason SCS is such an incredible place.
Thank you so much for your participation in SCS and in this special card drive!

Much Love and Gratitude to my Amazing sample makers! XOXO
