Thanks for your support!
I was looking through card photos and realized that I never shared this slightly racy Skipping Stones Design card! I made it a couple of months ago while I was guest designing for Heather, right when I first started with Couture Cardstock.
I adore pink and black together! I wanted to make a card for breast cancer awareness with this delicate, lacy bra. I used to work with mastectomy patients as a physical therapist in my "former life" (before child and card-making), and I know how NOT sexy that surgery can make a woman feel...so I wanted this card to have a confident, softly sexy feminine edge.
I am always keeping scraps of paper and fabric...I bought this black fishnet tulle back when I was first invited to be a Dirty Girl for Splitcoaststampers. I was planning to make a demure bride turned sexy wife kinda project for my first gallery (the theme was "In the Beginning") but ended up taking a different direction so the tulle sat in the scrap bin. I love how it looks here!
The bra was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with several shades of Copic markers to add some curves and contour! I added a tiny black rhinestone to the center.
Whisper a prayer for those who are battling breast cancer! And make sure you go for your annual exam! I'm overdue for mine!
