Papercrafters Unite Against Racism


I'm participating in a Papercrafters Unite Against Racism Blog Hop. Justine Hovey organized the hop and you can start at her blog or if you are from Jill Cameron Creations you are at the next stop! There are also crafter's hopping along on Instagram and on You Tube! You can get all the info on Justine's blog!

Like the majority of the US and the world, I am so upset, mad, disappointed, sick and so much more with the racial disparities in America, the police that continue to kill Black Americans. I really don't have the right words to express how I feel. In the past I have stayed quite, maybe a comment here or there. However, this is not enough, I've made donations, continued to speak out where in the past I would stay quiet. It's not a lot but I believe every little bit helps and I'm hopeful that we are working to make Black Lives Matter! A few places I like to check in to educate myself and ways to help! ACLU, Innocence Project, The Good Trade (places to donate and ways to be active)

My card features Mama Elephant's Three Amigo stamp set. I cut a stitched rectangle from white card stock and then stamped the three amigos, do a tiny bit of masking with one tale. I colored the images with my Copic markers.

For the signs I printed the three words from Word, leaving room between each so I could stamp the paper around each. Then I fussy cut out each little paper. Since they were printed on copy paper, they were flimsy. So I adhered them to card stock, then added them to my card with foam tape.

Next, I used my Copics to add a ground and a very light blue for the sky. Then I adhered the panel to a black card base. I kept things simple as not to distance from the Black Lives Matter message!
