Ike'sworld Challenges #74 Girl Power

Hi again!

It's been a while - in fact, it's been far too long, since I last picked up a pen/pencil or papers and glue and I've missed it so much, and have to admit to feeling completely sorry for myself.

But in light of what month it is and indeed, what we are focusing on for this month's challenge at Ike'sworld Challenges, I am very grateful for what health I do have still.

This month is Think Pink, specifically 16th October and we have a special theme

Girl Power.

For my Design Team inspirational project I chose the lovely freebie everyone who is a follower of the challenge can download and use (not just for this challenge, and indeed, you don't have to use it to enter). She's such a strong image I just had to use her. She's called Think Pink.

I printed the digital stamp onto Copics marker paper and used my Promarkers to colour her, then went over her hair and face with my Polychromos pencils to add definition. She was fussy cut ready to add to the card once I'd finished layering it up. I used papers from my Wild Rose Studio Vintage Rose paper pack, and used a spellbinder die to cut the two pieces of paper out. These were glued to a pink 6x6 card. I added a pink doily in the middle and placed my fussy cut Think Pink image in the middle. I added Botanica minis in Pink from Petaloo to the bottom of the image and I cut the sentiment from the die set Just a Note to Say by Frantic Stamper.

I'm so excited to be part of Ike's team and would love to see what you make for this month's challenge. Please go to week 1 to download the free image if you wish to use it for this or any other project, but do enter for a chance to win £15 worth of digital stamps from Ike's shop, or a cherished Top 3 badge if you're chosen by the Design Team as one of their favourite entries for the month. Just choose a stamp or digi that features a woman and it would be lovely if the colour pink featured somewhere, but that's optional.
