Inky Impressions- Boy Oh Boy Can We Show Our Support

The new challenge is up over at Inky Impressions challenge blog and this week it's team A's turn to do the challenge (I'm on team a of couse) and we have a bit if a special challenge this week, as the title says "boy oh boy can we show our support". This was a bit of a challenge but I managed it........just.
The design team were asked to use either the Lili's Awareness Ribbon stamp orone of the Inky boy stamps and colour him all in pink! Do a monochromatic pink card and add a pink ribbon in the shape of the breast cancer awareness ribbon- I think I managed all that, except I forgot while I was colouring and coloured the wood bit of the image brown and I was finished the card, but found a ticket sentiment that I thought was perfect for this card, so I just had to use it, even though it's not pink.
You don't have to so all of the above to enter the challenge though, the challenge for everyone else is to make a monochromatic card and/or breast cancer awareness.

I made this the other day and followed the sketch at Papertake Weekly but forgot that I wasn't posting it until today and missed the challenge...duh! but their challenge this week is Anything Goes so I will enter it this week instead :)

The papers are all Papermania, and I used Pirate Christopher which you can find in the Inky Impressions store here. He's coloured with Promarkers and I added a bit of faux stitching to the die cut mat with a pink Promarker too.

I would of never of thought about colouring a boy image pink, but I think little Christopher looks quite cute all in pink lol.

The flowers I used are all from Crafty Emma's Store, some ribbon from my stash which I added a pearl heart ribbon slider to, a punched border and the "Hope" ticket sentiment which I just thought summed this card up, so I had to add it even though it's supposed to be all pink.

I hope you will all join in with this special challenge and help raise breast cancer awareness as well as taking part for the chance to win a prize :)
We do love to see Inky Impressions stamps being used, but you can enter the challenge with any stamp and you will be in with a chance of winning an Inky digi stamp. If you do use one of the Inky Stamps then you could win yourself a special Inky package! :)
