Save the Hooters!

Ooooops...I'm a bit late posting this :(  Silly Blogger and its scheduling probs...grrrrr
The challenges at our Copic/Promarker group at The Outlawz are a bit out of kilter due to our HUGE week of celebrations for our 1000 Member Party.  Our challenges resume their normal postings from yesterday :)

And before I get onto my project.....our Copic/Promarker group have a FABULOUS prize for the rest of our regular October challenges......THE FULL SET OF POLLYCRAFT "CHESTER" DESIGNS!!!  These are SOOOOO cute, you won't want to miss out on a chance at winning them. Plus, we have some other great prizes at The Outlawz for October....so come along and join us for some fun :)

Now that the business stuff is out of the way, our theme this week is Pink/Opal/Breast Cancer Awareness. As October is BCA month, I decided to go with that theme for my card....


I've gone with a humorous approach. How could I resist these cuties?? By now I'm sure you've figured out I'm a bit mad for owls lol  The image is Save the Hooters from Whimsie Doodles and I've coloured with my trusty Copics and glitter pen. I've blinged the bra up a bit....what self-respecting girl doesn't love a bit of bling!! The band has been glazed with a Sakura glaze pen, to look like satin, and some little rhinestones added. The 'cups' have shimmer mist painted on them for a little added sparkle....looks a bit like the lycra stuff used in lingerie :) Hard to see in the photo but IRL it looks very pretty.

I think we all know someone who has been touched by this awful illness. Over the years I've lost a couple of friends to breast cancer and 2 years ago one of my nieces was diagnosed with it. She ended up having a mastectomy, chemo, radiation and eventually reconstructive surgery....a long, difficult journey. I'm very happy and relieved to say that she is now doing really well....thank goodness!

Wow, your colouring is amazing Lynne! I love this and brilliant DPs!

I have luckily not lost anyone close to me with cancer but still plenty who have had it and luckily recovered.

Have a lovely weekend honey!
