Hello everyone and welcome to the Stamp Out Autism Blog Hop! Thank you for visiting today. Brian King's blog may have sent you my way-- thanks Brian!
I am participating in a blog hop this weekend (and another next weekend!) to help raise awareness and funds for those affected by autism. I was asked to join in a huge fundraising effort led by my good friend & fabulously talented upline Lee Conrey... and couldn't be more happy to do so!
Autism touches so many lives and I'm sure everyone can think of someone they know who is on the spectrum. We are all sharing some facts about Autism along with our cards, so take some time to visit everyone along the hop -- learn something new and get some great crafty inspiration too.
To learn more even about Autism, please visit the official page of Autism Speaks and I hope you will also consider making a donation today to the Autism Society!
Now I am so excited to share my card for today's hop!! It's a cyanotype-inspired watercolor card, perfect for sending someone some happy mail.
What's a cyanotype you might ask? It is a photographic process that was created by a woman named Anna Atkins, who is commonly regarded as the first female photographer! I love the look of cyanotype and thought it would be fun to recreate with one of our many flower stamps and some watercoloring. :)
I had so much fun making this card! So much fun that I have posted a quick little tutorial on how to create this card if you are interested in making one of your own.
Now onward with the hop.... Be sure to participate in the blog hop by visiting Laura Milligan's blog next! You can click either button to go forward or backward so you catch all the fantastic cards being shared.
Thanks for stopping by!
