I'm playing along for the first time with the Double D Challenges where there is a pink and white theme happening spurred by this retro mood board! I needed a thank you card for the radiation oncology staff after I completed my 30 radiation treatments yesterday (the last step in my battle against breast cancer)! Woohoo! The ceiling in the treatment room was also an inspiration for my card. In spite of the frequent cold
and rainy weather outdoors, I knew I would see the sun shining in the treatment room! I took the photo on the right while lying on the exam table.
I wanted a very subtle light tan coloring to my brick background, so I added a couple drops of EOO Copic reinker to a dab of Liquitex light modeling paste. I applied it using the English Brick Wall stencil from My Favorite Things.
The berry branches are from Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Berries: Spring set which involves two-step stamping that has a more successful outcome if you use a MISTI. I then adhered the Grand Madison Window die by Poppystamps with foam tape. The sentiment is from The Stamp Market's Handwritten Thanks stamp set.
I'm also entering this into the new CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll leave this post with a photo of the ceremonial bell ringing that happens when either chemo or radiation treatments are completed! Three of the wonderful radiation oncology staff are celebrating with me! I bravely kept my scarf off and am showcasing my slowly growing, very gray hair that is growing back! :-)
