Flower Fairy Step Card

Step Card
        Hi friends Thank you so much for encouraging my attempts at stamping and CAS! Deeply appreciated...now back to my normal style of cards...multi-layered and 3 D! Another step card similar to my fist Stepping Blocks Card
        I made this card in purple to support Becca's Hop to Stop Domestic Violence Awareness campaign
Alcohol Inks 
Since I didnt have purple card-stock ,I used blue colored metallic card stock and red Alcohol Inks  to create a purple colored paper!
Alcohol Inks + Embossing
           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.
Step 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..!
Step Card
           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....
Alcohol Inks Card
Let yourself and your children be free .....
Clay Butterfly
Free like a butterfly....
Step Card
         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
Fairy Card
         I added all the little fairy children on my card to symbolize that children in such families need to be set free
Fairy Theme Step Card
And this photo shows how this style of step card can fold flat for mailing

  1. Wow!! This is very beautiful!! Love the embellishments you have added! I can't agree more on what you said! Yes, the children are very much affected in these situations. Hope our society realizes that.

  17. Sonia, you have taken the issue of Domestic Violence on a new level, can't agree with you more, yes the children are the most affected in such situations. Today morning saw a news report where the father killed a small girl of two years as he suspected his wife. Our society takes any act of violence towards women as a non-issue and therein lies the problem. But there is no easy solution, the society has to correct its mindset and every small act of healing and support counts !!

I always appreciate the way you share your secrets and give us such special ideas. The AI background is incredible! But then, so is your card - all your projects - truly, they are one of a kind, and I'm sure that the loving insight you reveal thru your artwork is only a minor portion of your heart as a doctor. Thank you so much! It's a beautiful design. I noticed you have also put this in the SL challenge, so now, I shall switch hats:
