Equality Awareness Hop

Betz Golden recently posted a blog article about the lack of stamp companies that offer stamps to support the LGBTQ+ community. In order to raise awareness she is hosting an Instagram hop, Sassy and Crafty is one of the few companies that have stamps to support so as a member of the DT I was invited to join in. There are a number of really great prizes up for grabs so check out the Instagram hop 

This is a cause that is very close to my heart. I am one of 4 and have a transgender sibling.  I will not go into detail as to protect their privacy. Only very close and old friends are aware of their past, as the discrimination that they come across is unbelievable and down right disgusting. 

Here is my creation

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making  Supplies 

Distress Oxide in Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Pine Needles, Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet
Clearly Besotted Stencil in My Sweetheart
Distress Ink in Wilted Violet
Banner Die

Card Making Tutorial

Using the rainbow colour sequence I blended the distress oxides onto a piece of A5 card which had been folded to create an A2 card base

Once dry I used the texture paste and the stencil 

The sentiment was stamped cut out using a banner die. This cover by purple at the bottom of the card panel so I coloured it using wilted violet distress ink

A piece of blue pearlescent card was also cut with the banner die

The banners were adhered onto the bottom of the panel 

I stamped and coloured my image using the scan and cut to cut this out. It was then adhered onto the centre of the card panel

The sentiment banner was finished with a tiny heart sequin
