Hi! I am so happy to be able to take part in The Hop to Stop as it is all about raising awareness and reminding us of the pains and horrors others may be facing. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and this 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. The color for raising awareness for this cause is purple, and I decided to focus my card on love...
I created this card by first laying some water onto my watercolor cardstock. I then dropped in three different purples from my Peerless Watercolors, dried them and continued layering them. Once it was fully dry I stamped my sentiment with Versafine Ink. The hearts were created by heat embossing onto foil before diecutting the various hearts out. I then popped some up with foam adhesive. I then distressed the edges with a distressing tool.
I am also linking this card up with the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes Challenge
