I made this card in purple to support Becca's Hop to Stop Domestic Violence Awareness campaign
Since I didnt have purple card-stock ,I used blue colored metallic card stock and red Alcohol Inks to create a purple colored paper!
Used the WRMK woven embossing folder to create a basket weave pattern. Cut up my customized paper into scalloped squares for some of the blocks on my card.
In this post I want to focus on children...anyone who has been through domestic violence will agree that often children are the hardest hit...it leaves huge psychological scars on little minds. Many a times the unfortunate woman stays in the domestic abuse situation because of the children....lacking confidence to leave the situation , afraid of the future for the "sake" of her children..!
I want to reach out to anyone who is suffering from domestic violence or anyone who knows a victim of domestic violence......It is often best for the children to leave such a violent environment. In societies such as India ...many a times the relatives, the friends and even the parents of the woman advice her to stay in the marriage "for the sake of the child/children" Nothing could be more wrong....
Let yourself and your children be free .....
Free like a butterfly....
Children don't deserve to live in fear ...wondering when the father is going to beat their mother up or themselves! Help the children be free to enjoy their childhood
I added all the little fairy children on my card to symbolize that children in such families need to be set free
And this photo shows how this style of step card can fold flat for mailing
