Japanese Lady in Purple

I made another purple (my favorite color ever :) )card for HOP TO STOP at Becca´s Blog :

She is holding a HOP and here is why:

You see, purple is the colour 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.

Here is her Rule:

THE RULES (oh those pesky things...)

If you'd like to participate in the Hop to Stop, here's how it works:

  • 1 - Make a card that FEATURES purple (I LOVE PURPLE YAAAYYY)
  • 2 - Link it up below before October 14, 12noon CST
  • 3 - New creations only please, no backlinking allowed
  • 4 - Provide a link back to the Hop! (it would be great if you put the badge in, too!)
  • 5 - You MUST comment on at least the 3 entries before you to be eligible to win (be a good neighbor) buuuuuuut visiting the sponsor blogs/shops is HIGHLY encouraged. (hey - they are pretty generous and it would be great if we could thank them! There might even be an extra special top-secret prize in it for someone - wink* wink*)

I stamped this lovely Japanese Girl and colored it with my copic markers.

I love these Japanese paper

and I try to use some of them and made my own stripes Design paper.

Here is the whole look of my card, I stamped a bit Japanese/Chinese words with purple ink at two edge. I am sorry I dont have a good sentiment for this Image also I only choose HELLO sentiment.

I think I still need butterfly for my card also I put this acetate butterfly and hiding the double tape with 3 pearls.

  9. Hello, Monika! I am on a blog break but I plan to continue commenting over at the Hop to Stop since I am commenting on all of the cards and I want to finish them. I am happy to see you supporting the hop again - this is another beautiful card! I love how you used the strips of Japanese paper to make a gorgeous background - I will have to try this! Your Japanese woman is lovely, and I love your colouring with Copics. The butterfly adds a nice detail! Thank you for caring about domestic violence awareness and for all of your support.

  12. Gorgeous creation. The papers are so beautiful and I love the image. Thanks for joining the Crafting With An Attitude challenge.

  13. What a beauty! This is gorgeous, Monika, Jo x

  14. You make your own paper using stamps, but when using papers you also make your own, lol. These papers are gorgeous, I love their oriental look and the touches of gold, perfect with this beauty of a geisha. I also like how you reduced the white space by stamping Chinese, or Japanese, words in the corners. And the acetate butterfly, wow, did you make that yourself? It has never occurred to me that stamped elements on acetate could be such wonderful embellishments...

  15. Oh my word this is totally amazing how you've put that background together Monika!! I just love your oriental theme and how perfectly everything goes with your image!! Stunning job!! And I love purple so much too my friend!! I haven't had enough time to play in the hop! :(
