All of the wonderful sponsors of this hop are shown in Becca's graphic above. Amazing sponsors with fabulous prizes for sharing your cards. Here is my card -
To begin I stamped the sentiment from Dyan Reaveley Quintessential Quotes in Ranger Archival Deep Purple Ink onto Ranger Watercolor Paper. I choose archival ink because I knew I was going to add watercoloring for my background and archival ink is permanent.
I used the newest distress ink by Tim Holtz, Wilted Violet, to create the background. The ink was smooshed onto my carft mat and spritzed with water. Then I dragged the watercolor paper through the ink on my mat and dried it with my heat tool. Once the panel was dry, I smooshed it in the ink again and let it drip around to create another layer of color. Once dry, I blotted the panel into the ink to create some splatters. Love the end result. It resembles crying and tears to me, something any DV survivor knows too well.
The panel was die cut with SSS Stitched Rectangles and then was split using Mama Elephant Landscape Trio die cuts. The pieces were then adhered to a top-folding Neenah card base. I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins to finish off my card.
The sentiment I chose for my card says it all. Every survivor of any type of abuse needs to hear these words repeatedly.
I hope everyone has a good day. Enjoy!
