Autism Blog Hop with Right at Home!




April is World Autism Awareness Month and as a Mother of an Autistic son, I'm proud to be joining in the 2018 Stamping for Autism Awareness Blog Hop sponsored by Veronica Zalis

Nicole from Right at Home and I are joining Veronica and tons of other amazing stampers to help raise Autism awareness! We hope you will help us spread the word and Hop along with us. There's going to be lots of fun prizes too - including a $20 Gift Certificate from Right At Home! 

I will have Three posts today for the Hop from different companies so be sure to scroll to see them all.

I started with a piece of Distress Ink watercolor paper. Then I added some Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks to create a watercolor background. I adhered the piece to a top folding A2 size card base and set it aside to dry. I stamped the clouds and sun images from the Banner Alpha Add-On stamp set onto some X-Press It Blending cardstock and added some color with Copic Markers. The sun image was stamped in Lawn Fawn's Sunflower ink and then I added some Copics for additional color. 


The Sentiment is from the Color In Sentiments Stamp set and I stamped that onto the same cardstock and colored it in with Copics as well. I fussy cut all of the images out (there is a coordinating die available in the shop) and adhered them with some foam adhesive and liquid glue to create my scene. I used the banner form the Folded Gift Tag Die set for the You are so Sentiment. For a pop of Sparkle, I added some Mixed Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 

Head over to the Right at Home Blog and Check out what Nicole Created for the Hop.

Thanks for joining us for the Special Hop!!!
