The Hop To Stop


I'm playing along at The Hop To Stop where Becca, the inimitable Damsel of Distressed, is raising awareness for victims of domestic violence.

I sprinkled Paper Artsy Infusions through a Donna Downey Donna's Blossom 3 stencil on mixed media paper and spritzed to activate the Infusions.  I removed the stencil and once everything was dry I added a colour washed background, stamped a sentiment and added some Walnut Stain Distress Stickles in the centre.

Then I turned the stencil over and laid it on a fresh piece of mixed media paper to soak up all the colour.  Once it was dry I replaced the stencil and sponged Wilted Violet Distress Ink to define the outline of the flower, and added some tiny dots with a fineliner to further emphasise the outline.


Pop on over to Becca's hop and play along - she's got some fabulous sponsors!
