It's good to be back here and not in the garden... although the gardens are looking good now, there is still work to be done.
The inspiration for this card has come from several sources, not the least is Beccas Hop To Stop. Becca is passionate about preventing, and making people aware of, Domestic Violence, and has created this hop to raise awareness.
To quote Becca, and these statistics are not confined to any one country...
1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes.
Let that sink in - 33% of all the women you meet.
And women aren't the only people who are affected! Women, men, transgender - gender doesn't matter. Domestic violence is something that exists regardless of gender, socioeconomic status, religion, education level, etc.
One of the requirements is to make a card featuring purple, one of my favourite colours.
The bird stamps are from STAMPlorations
The sentiment is a Stampin' Up one from a set of the same name.
I swiped two colours of purple ink direct to paper across the base of the card, stamped the birds in a stack, partly painted the birds with ink, and sprayed the card with purple Smooches.
I tried to photograph the sparkle the Smooches gives, but it would not co-operate!
