Take these broken wings ............and learn to fly again.....




Hello friends

Another card for the 'Blog to Hop'..........


I had this lovely Itty bitty stamp from Unity Stamps Fly Free with me designed by Tanis Geisbrecht which went so well with my thoughts on this sensitive issue of  Domestic Violence. The text on the butterfly says...Fly Free....Take wings....


I started with stenciling the hearts with ColourArte Radiant Gel Dimensional Paint in Emperor's Gold and then sponging with Dusty Concord Distress ink and then splattering with water to get the distressed effect....



 Stamped one butterfly with Versamark and embossed using Zing Metallic Gold embossing Powder. The other was stamped with Archival black, fussy cut and colored using the awesome Silks Acrylic Glaze in Iridescent Violet which gives it a lovely translucent purple shimmer .......

I do hope that this wonderful initiative by Becca Cruger helps in creating awareness, healing and support ...and those in need can take those broken wings and learn to fly again.............I leave you with these beautiful lines......................

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again

And learn to live so free
And when we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up
And let us in

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again....................
from "Broken Wings"(originally by Mr Mister)

  5. What fantastic lines Suman...totally love it! It angers me so much to see domestic abuse being treated as "normal" in our societies and while hopping I read so many stories and I was a bit surprised to see it is as rampant in the "developed" world as it is in our country.

  6. Now I am singing that song - I remember it was a big hit by Anne Murray here in Canada when I was young. Your purple and gold are gorgeous - I love the backgrounds you made. The butterflies are such a wonderful symbol for this cause. Thank you for caring and for supporting the Hop to Stop.
