Here is the card I am showcasing for the hop, and I used "Mommy's girl".
I coloured it in with watercolour pencils and OMS, and drew in a savanna scene behind them. The paper behind the sentiment (a gold rub-on) is a piece of handmade paper with rhino dung in it! My reason for choosing this digistamp is because I love rhinos, and am appalled at the massacre currently being carried out in my own country, and I hope I can raise awareness though my card. Here are some facts from the Save the Rhino website....
- South Africa is home to 83% of Africa’s rhinos and 73% of all wild rhinos worldwide and is an incredibly important country for rhino conservation. However rhino poaching has reached a crisis point, and if the killing continues at this rate, we could see rhino deaths overtaking births in 2016-2018, meaning rhinos could go extinct in the very near future!
- The figure for 2013 currently stands at 688 rhinos that have been poached in South Africa, which works out to almost 2 per day! The current poaching crisis is attributed to the growing demand for rhino horn in Asian countries, mainly China and Vietnam, where horn is believed to have medicinal properties.
Each blog in the hop is offering a prize of ONE digistamp, and each DT member has made a card with this digi to showcase the prize. The main DS4J blog is offering a fantastic prize of $30 worth of digistamps from the DS4J store.
The PRIZE on this Blog is the digistamp "Mommy's girl"
