The Hop to Stop.

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. 


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.


xoxo,
Jessi

Dearest Jessi, I'll never forget when I first read your post where you talked about your experience. Re-reading it brought me to tears all over again. I wish I had arms long enough to reach to Canada so I could give you a big ol' hug.
I just love the creation you made! The super galactic sparkly background is the bomb-diggity! What a great way to incorporate purple!
Thank you so much for being the amazing you and for supporting this hop!
