I Am the Diva: Challenge 190: Pink for Ardath


The Diva called this Challenge Pink for Ardath because last winter her grandmother Ardath passed away from complications due to Breast Cancer. So she has dedicated this challenge to all people who have valiantly fought this fight against Breast Cancer.  The challenge for the "Challenge" this week is to incorporate "Pink" somewhere in the tangle.

My tangle is 6" x 6" and is done on a piece of white illustration board.  I used the Prismacolor colored pencil  color "pink" and Micron -Pigma ink pens in .005 and .05.  I used the symbol Hearts for 2 reasons - first and most importantly,  everyone should fight this disease with all their hearts, and secondly, my maiden name is Hart and I often use Hearts in my compositions.

Wonderful tribute Tile, Barbara. Love your heart string and the patterns that you selected to fill it. Beautiful colors and a delightful overall design. Well done.

One feels the love and energy. The pattern is lovely. As a survivor, I appreciate you taking the time to think pink. I ran a card sale this month and have raised over $100 to donate to breastcancer.org.

Susan, I thought of you when I was doing this tangle. It is so good that people are responding to your cards and that you are raising money for your cause. Your cards are so beautiful - as are all your paintings.
