Awareness and Causes Challenge at Glitter Geeks

This week at the Glitter Geek Challenge Blog, our it is all about  AWARENESS AND CAUSES  ... we challenge you to create something that promotes awareness for a cause.... it might be a charity, or an illness or disability, or for any cause that you want to bring awareness to!  What can you come up with?

We are sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps, who offers our winner a prize of 7 images ... winner's choice! (Bugaboo has an awesome selection of images perfect for promoting awareness and causes!)   I chose to use our sponsor's image "Ribbon Bear" and my chosen cause was Autism Awareness...

Ingredients: White square cardbase; coloured card; decorative papers; Promarkers; Glitter Pens; Water Pen; Black Signo pen; Pink Pearls    

I coloured the bear with a promarker and a waterpen... thinning the ink in places, and leaving it dark in other.  His nose is coloured with black glitter pen.  I coloured the ribbon with glitter pens in various colours, and smudged the colours together with my waterpen. I fussy cut the image, and edged him in black ink.  With the awareness ribbon for Autusim being a jigsaw puzzle of rainbow colours, I made a background that reflected many colours as well... so I created a'quilt' of coloured triangles.

I'd like to share with you a link to a page at Disabled World that offers a list of causes, with awareness ribbon colours. I am sure that there are many more causes that could be listed, but it is an informative site, with links to many other reference sites. This link at Fire Mountain Gems has a very detailed list of causes/illnesses matched with their awareness ribbon colours...

I hope you'll join us in our challenge at Glitter Geeks this week and join in our Awareness and Causes challenge.... Thanks for peepin'!
