"Stay Sassy! Stay Strong!" Breast Cancer Awareness month with The EastWind!

Howzit Friends!
 It's time for our new bi-monthly challenge over at The East Wind and today I'm sharing my DT inspiration project featuring October's Newsletter Freebie!

The theme for Challenge #64 is "In The Pink" for Breast Cancer Awareness month!

  Way too many of us have been effected by Breast Cancer either directly or have supported family members and friends as they've battled through it!  I'm proud to say I'm a 15 year Breast Cancer survivor myself and I'm so grateful for the support of my loving family and friends!

I created this Notepad with the inspirational message to all our Sisters to STAY SASSY and STAY STRONG! and Fight Like a Girl!

I printed the image out onto Neenah solar white cardstock and coloured her hair with Copic markers and the rest of the image with Prismacolor pencils with additional shading and shadows added to the hair with Prismacolor pencils too.  I outlined the entire image with a black Copic fine liner leaving a narrow white border between the line and the image to make her really pop.  I then fussy cut her out and trimmed off some of the image on the right to fit the notepad cover I made.

The cover was easy to make.  I used heavy weight white cardstock and used the notepad as a template.  I cut the cardstock .25 inches larger than the notepad and selected a more subtle and feminine decorative paper to contrast with the bold and bright digi image and covered the outside and the inside.  Before adhering the DP to the inside I sandwiched in the two ribbon pieces.

I then decorated the cover with two decorative corner accents die cut from black cardstock (Sizzix Corner Accent die) and the text which I designed in Photoshop CS6 and matted on black cardstock.  I finished it over with a few random dimensional drops of black Inkssentials Enamel Accents.
Come and join the fun at The East Wind...we have 2 blog challenges every month and fun challenges on on our TEW Facebook Group too!
