It's time to......THINK PINK!

Hello Everyone!!  October is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness and this year, we at Copic Oz are doing our small part to help support and find a cure for this terrible disease.  I'm sure most of us have been affected by Breast Cancer in some way, either personally or have seen a friend or family member fight it, so be a little creative and help us to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation this month by joining us in the......PINK CHALLENGE!!!!  For EVERY card entered below, $5 will go to the McGrath Foundation who do such amazing work supporting those affected by Breast Cancer, generously donated by X-Press Graph-X!

THE CHALLENGE:  Make a PINK PROJECT (card, scrapbook page, 3D off the page) using your COPICS, link it to the InLinkz below on this post and link this post on your blog (if you have one)!  You can use ANY stamps or products you like, as long as you use your Copics somewhere in the process and you can enter as many times as you like!!  :)

WHEN: The Challenge is open from October 3rd (AU EST) through to 6pm Monday October 29th (AU EST)!  The Winner will be announced on Tuesday October 30th!

WHO CAN PLAY:  EVERYONE, including International!!!

PRIZE: YES!!!  There is an awesome prize for the winner!  Not only does your entry result in $5 being donated to the McGrath Foundation, the winner will also receive a prize pack of the Flourishes Think Pink Stamp Set, an Acrylic Block and a Pack of X-press It Blending Card!

Today I've used my Copics for a few different things!  The most obvious is to colour the pink ribbon on the T-shirt - for this I've used RV00, RV52 and RV55!  (The t-shirt itself is coloured with G40, G43 and G46.)  I've also coloured the edges of the ribbon, which began as completely white but now has a pretty RV52 edge!  The last thing I did was colour the rhinestones with RV66 so that they too would be pink!  These had to be done with a darker colour since bling is a non-absorbent material.  And of course to add a little dimension for the t-shirt and the sentiment, I've used X-press It High Tack Foam Tape.  *LOVE* this stuff, over many years I've tried a variety of foam tapes and nothing sticks like this High Tack Foam Tape!!  :)
The stamps I've used today are from the Flourishes Think Pink set, a fun and funky Breast Cancer Awareness set that could be yours simply by linking your project to the InLinkz below!!!

Don't forget to visit our fundraising page for the McGrath Foundation. There are Copic Stockists around Australia holding events to raise money for this amazing charity.

I hope I've inspired you to join us this month and help us to raise funds for Breast Cancer!!  Thank You So Much and Happy Colouring!!
