Needless to say I made a couple of cards to send her while she was going through her treatment. Loll has now shared her story on her blog so I have her permission to mention it and to pass on her encouragement to everyone to do their monthly breast self-examinations.
Here are the two cards I made for Loll:
The background was done as an experiment of marbling with food colouring dropped on top of soapy water. I was hoping to use it for the CAS Mix Up marbling challenge but I didn't get a true marbled look so used it for a card for Loll instead as it's in colours she likes.
I added some randomly-inked text (using Distress Old Paper ink), die cut with a stitched rectangle, added a die cut spray of flowers and some sequins, and stamped and heat embossed my sentiment in gold on vellum.
Here's the second card:
On this one, I experimented with alcohol inks on translucent Yupo. The alcohol inks spread out into larger circles than they do on regular Yupo. I used a new die cut for the flower and my pierced frames to border it.
Loll titled her post about her cancer "Truly Grateful" because she had really good results from the surgery. I'm also grateful to have her on the mend and facing a positive outcome for a full recovery.
