Roses for Breast Cancer

Hi there 🙂 I’m here to share my inspiration project for this month’s challenge on the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group. Our theme this month is Think Pink for Breast Cancer. I wanted to implement the pink ribbon symbol somehow on my project, and amazingly, forgetful me, remembered the rose ribbon that I received as a freebie from Sarah Renae Clark a few years ago. I looked through the CCK Etsy Store, and although there were numerous images that had roses in them, I liked this one, from this set, because it would be easy to erase the background and merge it onto the ribbon. I colored everything with my Copics, adding some accents to the image frame and vines, with gold gel pen, then fussy cut it out.

I had a few ideas kicking around in my head as to what to make with this, but I kept going back to something that would make a nice way to present a gift to someone going through the cancer fight. I had this alterable container in my stash that reminded me of a gift bag, so went with that. Bonus with this piece is how the hole in the ribbon lines up with the handle so nicely!! I painted the bare wood green, then sponged gold over that. I attached a pale pink piece of ribbon around the centre, then glued on the image. For the back, I printed out an encouraging sentiment, die cut it and matted it before adhering it.

The only sad thing about this project is that someone will be fighting this dreadful disease when they get it as a “pick me up”.
