Welcome back to HYCCT! I love the month of October as we join together to create hundreds of cards to send off to those patients at MD Anderson facing a challenging diagnosis of cancer. We hope you can join us for a few challenges, or all of them, as we have a blast this month.
Sweet Bridget has given us the MOST beautiful inspirational photos from Pinterest to inspire us to create. It is no question which one I chose as I created a very similar sky with a reflection on the water. These are my favorite kind of cards to create. I truly have the inky fingers of a stamper when finishing this type of card. Nature and being on the water create such a peaceful feeling. Maybe this image will take one patient back to happier times as they recuperate. This nighttime sky was created with a lot of sponging. I masked off and used a gradient of colors- Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Rich Razberry, Elegant Eggplant. The moon was masked after the Pink Pirouette sponging and it's highlighted with a white gel pen and silver stickles. I created the stars with dots of white gel pen and a touch of stickles throughout the sky. I sprayed with shimmer spray so IRL this is sparkling.
The sentiment says: May the waves kiss your feet, the sand be your seat and your friends out number the stars.
