The Hop to Stop - Card #3

Hey everyone!  I'm back with one more card for The Hop to Stop.  Becca from the Damsel of Distressed blog has organized this awesome event to raise awareness about domestic violence.  If you want to join in check out all the details at her blog.  There are some fantastic prizes from some very generous sponsors.  And if you want to give your cards to someone who could use them, Becca is collecting them for her local shelter.  :-)

So, here's my card...

I masked off a section of my card and sponged on dusty concord Distress ink making an ombré look. Then I stamped my foliage and branches (CAS-ual Fridays) in dove gray StazOn ink, dusty concord Distress ink, and black Memento ink.  Lastly, I splattered some watered down white acrylic paint.  I removed the mask and added a trimmed strip if silver glitter tape. Then I Stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.

Come join us over at Becca's blog and support this important cause!

Thanks for visiting with me today and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

I'm going to link up to the following challenges:
