Self-worth

Today is the DAY, the start of Becca's Hop To Stop Domestic Violence.  As long as you feature purple on your card and spread some comment love, you can link up.  There's also the option of sending her your cards for distribution to those whose lives have been touched by domestic violence.  Birthday cards are what's needed most.

In my card I used Copics over Hero Arts shadow ink to create the look of watercoloring on the flowers.  Just a little white pigment ink pen to cover up the areas where I didn't follow the lines (what a surprise) and those were ready to go.  The leaves I stamped straight up.  I stamped the sentiment in brown for a softer look.  Isn't the sentiment divine?  I'm particularly in love with PTI's Choose Joy set of sentiments right now.

The Details:  Altenew Lacy Scrolls flowers, Papertrey Ink Meadow Greens leaves and Choose Joy sentiment, Recollections 110lb white cardstock, Memento Pear Tart, Hero Arts Passion Flower, Copic V12, V15, V17, Y18

I'm also entering this in Addicted to Stamps and More #164 CAS, Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes, Virginia's View #19 All Things Colored

  23. Toni, this couldn't be more perfect for the Hop to Stop! That sentiment is amazing and something I think we should all remind ourselves of (I know I should put this on my fridge!!). Your flowers are as beautiful as the sentiment and would be lovely to be received by someone in a horrible situation. So happy you shared this with us at ATSM and I must get myself organised to create a purple card too!!
