Hop to Stop and a Spotlight
I've gone all purple in honour of The Hop To Stop, a blog hop organised by the Damsel of Distressed herself, Becca Cruger, to raise awareness about domestic violence. October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and purple is their chosen colour.
I started off with a piece of white card which had a partial covering of gesso. Should have been a full covering but I was being a bit stingy with the stuff. I added some Distress Inks, spritzed and watched it move and soak in to the un-gessoed areas. It left this pattern, which I decided looked like a flower, so I got out the black fineliner and started drawing. You can see the first pen mark already made.
So I just kept scribbling and drawing until I had something that resembled flowers. Added a stamped sentiment, mounted it onto purple card, and it's done.
I'm also entering this into Simon Says Work It Wednesday - Use A Stamp
and Simon Says Stamp - World Cardmaking Day
I'm over at STAMPlorations tonight with a step-by-step on this card. Pop on over for a closer look!
