Colon cancer awareness

Dark blue is a color for Colon cancer awareness. I thought that card which is entirely dark blue may be too depressing, so i added light background and some green leaves to symbolise hope. Leaves are die-cutted out of Sticker Paper and covered with Lator Gator glitter.

As a focal image I used Survivor Stamp Set #713. Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with markers. Then I used Sakura Glue Pen to adhere the Sapphire Silk Sparkle N Soft to the ribbon and tiny hearts. It's die-cutted with circle die and edges are inked with Summer Sky ink. For the matting layer I adhered  2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" to the cardstock and cutted out with scalloped circle die. I added Loyalty glitter on top.

For the background I used MemoryBox Honey Comb Stencil and DreamWeaver White Embossing Paste. To color the paste I used Salty Ocean Distress ink. While stenciled paste was still wet I covered it with Velvet Sparkle Embossing powder. After paste was dry, I heat embossed the powder. The small white dots you see all over are speckles of Super Thick White embossing powder. You don't need a Versamark ink to adhere them. Most important thing is to remember that you have to heat them underneath the paper. 

Two leaf flourishes are die-cutted out of Sticker Paper. One is covered with Cloud Nine glitter and other with Loyalty glitter. I colored parts of the white flourish with light blue marker. Color was added to the back side of the Sticker Paper. It is quite thin and the marker bleed right through.

I also added some tiny pearls, lace and  Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh. Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Loyalty glitter.
