You know it's October when you see NFL players wear bright pink! I love to see it!! Commercials on TV, adds to remind women to take care of themselves, and lots of opportunity to support a worthy cause.

- Inked up image with brown ink and stamped onto white card stock. Repeated on second sheet of card stock.
- Inked up image again, focusing on the skirt, and stamped onto design paper. On the second image, I inked up the mini shell image and stamped to add a design to her scarf and one of the fabric rolls. Repeat several times for the pattern you want. NOTE: I stamped off each time to create a subtle pattern.
- Colored the portions of image that I was not planning cover up with pieces of design paper/card stock. I did color a base coat for the patterned fabric roll - to make sure I had a back-fill in case I missed any little pieces. Color the image using two or three markers in a color family for shading. When you have a large area, I find three shades work best. For smaller areas, I use two. For her eyes, I used a black mulitliner to fill in her pupils, leaving a small white space. Then used a brown marker for the rest of color. After it dried, I used the same brown marker to color just a little portion on the left side of each eye ball to give it dimension.
- Cut out my main image and all the pieces.
- Adhered full image to base card.
- I put small dabs of liquid adhesive on the part of the base image for the pieced fabric roll and skirt, and then placed each piece in place and press lightly. TIP: For this this technique, liquid adhesive works best because it allows you some time to move your pieces of paper around to fit perfectly over your base image. Dab glue inside your image, not at the edge. When you press down on the designer paper, the adhesive will spread. If it does spread beyond the edge, just wipe it off. For more information about this technique, called paper piecing, click here to see a post I did with details on how to do this.
- I stamped the her ribbon on, colored it, and used a glitter pen to add a splash of sparkle to her jewelry.
- For the inside of the card, I used a scrap piece of paper to mask and then spread color in the open area of the base card.
- For the letters, I inked up each one with VeraMark ink then inked up with pink and stamped onto scrap white card stock. Next I sprinkled embossing powder , heat set and adhered them over the pink area.
- I stamped a couple images on the inside, and as you can see I like to stamp the back of my cards too!
