Another post for me today which has been a few weeks in the making.
Becca Cruger has set up a blog hop as October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the USA (was back in March here in Australia). This blog hop is designed to raise awareness about domestic violence, an issue that impacts 1 in 4 women, and the resources that are available to assist victims of domestic violence.
I am very proud to be part of this blog hop not only as a participant but as a sponsor. Happy Little Stampers will be giving away a
Here is my card -
I really concentrated on purple because that is the colour that is associated with DV Awareness.
I created my background with my Brushos, starch and cling wrap. Once dry I used a star stencil and embossing paste for some texture. When nearly dry I brushed over some perfect pearls to give the stars a golden shine.
The butterfly and sentiment are from Happy Little Stampers Butterfly Birthday set. The butterfly was embossed on vellum with purple powder. The sentiment was embossed in white.
I really hope that you can play along with the hop. There are heaps of prizes to be won. Not only that but we can come together and raise awareness for this serious problem.
If you are in Australia and are a victim or need help due to Domestic Violence (female or male) please go to the Domestic Violence Support Website.
