I am so honoured to be participating in The Hop to Stop, an incredible show of support, awareness, and information spearheaded by the one & only Becca Cruger, The Damsel of Distressed. I shared my own experience with domestic violence last October, and besides the support from the blogging community (you guys are awesome) I also learned more about my friends' stories.
In the province of Nova Scotia, transition house information can be found here. Information about domestic violence and recognizing the signs in people you know and love can be found here.
For the hop, we're all creating with purple - the awareness colour for domestic violence. The theme is your choice - as long as you feature purple. I decided with my first card to also celebrate love.
Supplies: stamps from PTI; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Versamark; clear detail EP; Moonstone EP; Sakura clear glitter pen; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; Distress inks in Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, and Chipped Sapphire; Spectrum Noir markers
I stamped & embossed the sentiment first, and then the moon. Before embossing I tapped off the clear powder & resprinkled it with moonstone powder to get the sort of pocky moonscape look. Then I stamped & coloured the rocket, coated it with Dimensional Magic, sponged the inky background, and finally clear-embossed the stars. *whew* Lots of steps for a single layer!
Becca's blog has all the information you need to participate in the hop - and I hope you will! Link up before October 14 to join us.
