Survivor Bra


Anne here and hopefully you were able to join us earlier this month for the Cancer Awareness Campaign joint blog hop with Die-Versions and Sparkle N Sprinkle.   Today's card continues that partnership and combines the DV Survivor Bra along with a SNS sentiment from their Awareness stamp set.

I started out by die cutting the Survivor Bra from white cardstock and coloring it with Copic markers.  I die cut it a second time from Sticker Paper to create the lacy cups. 

The lacy background technique was used for both the background as well as the lacy bra cups.  This is an easy technique to do.  Start with some Sticker Paper and lay down a piece of lace.  Cover the entire area with glitter (Mauvelous was used here) and burnish it in with your finger tool.  Remove the lace and cover the exposed adhesive with another glitter color.  I used Cloud Nine velvet glitter for this part.  The ribbon in the center of the bra was covered with more Mauvelous glitter and Silver Detail embossing powder was used for the hook on the hanger.   The sentiment was heat embossed with Black Detail embossing powder onto colored vellum and tucked under the oval. 
I also used the Bling Your Brad technique with Mauvelous glitter to have a place for the hander to hang from.  This card is so glittery and I felt that the old adage "less is more" definitely applied.   

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Awareness dies and the Awareness stamp sets will be donated to help cancer research.
