The Hop to Stop!!

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and I am participating in The Hop to Stop, 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. This thoughful hop is the master mind of super fabulous, very creative and amazingly supportive Becca Cruger. She is also my team mate at STAMPlorations and also a cool stamp designer :) I am so happy and honored to be a part of her hop.
For more information about domestic violence, its impacts, and available resources, visit the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence. http://www.nrcdv.org/

Becca has put together a ton of sponsors for this hop, so you have a chance not only to spread awareness but also to win prizes :) In order to participate you can create any type of papercraft/mixed media art project, as long as it *features* the color purple (domestic violence awareness color). A link to the hop will close October 14. Prize winners will be announced October 17.


Let me show you the card I created...
I went with a simple design and kept the color as the focal :) I stamped the lotus and water ripples (using Dee's Artsy Impressions - Lotus Love) on a water colored card stock, water colored it and stamped the sentiment, I layered this diecut panel on a purple card stock which was scored :) To finish the card I stamped the sentiment (using the Bee's Knees - City Girl ) and added some purple sequins :) I am sharing this at Virginia's View Challenge #19 - All thing Colored, Addicted to Stamps & More #164 - CASSparkle and Shine Challenge #15 (inspired by water coloring)
  
Hope you will join the hop too! You can link you projects HERE

  5. This card is serene, pristine, and most of all - fabulous. I have the Lotus Love set and I *neeed* to bust it out of its packaging. Maybe now that I'm finally all moved! Thank you for the kind, kind words my friend. I'm blushing over here. And thank you for supporting the Hop to Stop. *heart*
