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)

The Kraft base card  and the kraft and gold striped paper is from DCWV.....


 The diecut and the punched butterfly is colored using DecoArt Metallic Lustre Gold Rush which adds such a rich gold effect to the card. The girl's dress and bodice is highlighted with a bit of Diamond stickles. The butterfly is a RAK from a dear blogger friend :)

The sentiment is from a mirror embellishment set from DCWV......added few rhinestones in red to finish off......

a watercolor background card for  WCMD 2015 Watercolor with Vanessa ,  WCMD 2015 BBB: masterBoard Background Building with Shay.....


I created the background on watercolor paper using Camlin Watercolors..........splattered with China white, Crimson and Ivory black watercolors after the background was dry.



The Die-cut is embellished with Diamond Stickles by Ranger ....The butterfly and sentiment is a Rub-on from Tim Holtz Botanical set.


I have used a sentiment which can have multiple interpretations and this card can be used for so many occasions.......I am also linking to Blog to Hop conveying a wonderful sense of rediscovering of self .....

The Silent Tear.....................


Hello friends
 This card is for the Hop to Stop Domestic Violence awareness challenge. 

Purple is the color of National Domestic Violence Awareness month. 1 in 3 women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes. Let that sink in - 33% of all the women you meet. 
And women aren't the only people who are affected! Women, men, transgender - gender doesn't matter. Domestic violence is something that exists regardless of gender, socioeconomic status, religion, education level, etc.

I suspect that the figures are significantly higher in India. The abuse and violence is not only physical but is emotional too. on top of it is the victim's sense of 'shame' which makes them suffer silently...shedding 'silent tears'......... 

I wanted to create a hard- hitting visual with a strong positive affirmation of hope and faith, so my card does not use the goody goody happy colors, it is mounted on the drab kind of Kraft layers without any color, then a layer of dark colors showing the chaos and disturbance and out of all that...... the emergence of the strong woman who with all the hurt, pain and suffering decides to Live, Create and Tell the story ...........



I agree with  Becca Cruger that "...... in sharing our stories, we can heal and help."


For this card I have used some of my Gelli Prints made in various shades of Deep Purple and lavender using ColourArte Silks Acrylic Glazes in Boysenberry, Raspberry Wine, TealZircon and Sunflower

I have used the Andy Skinner stencil 'Strike the Pose' from DecoArt and DecoArt Media Black Gesso to stencil the face on the gelli Print.......
I have distressed the edges and sponged with black archival ink, layered on a kraft card from DCWV and doodled with Black Micron 0.5 tip pen. The tear drop is made using the glue gun and it is highlighted with a bit of Metallic Lustre  in DecoArt Silver Spark............



There is another work of mine, a mixed media work named 'Bruises' on a similar theme which you can see here
