Here's a card that I've made to show my support for the It Gets Better project - a project which works to prevent suicide among LGBTQ-youths. Their mission is to communicate to LGBTQ-kids that it gets better.
The child with a mirror comes from A Day for Daisies. I have coloured her with Promarkers and Stickles.
For the card base I've recycled/upcycled an old post-card.
The text that I've chosen for this card comes from the song I was Married by Tegan & Sara:
I look into the mirror
for evil that just does not exist
I don't see what they see
(tell them that, tell them that)
When I got censored (3 times) in the crafting world last year for creating a LGBTQ-friendly card, I learned that there are grown-ups who think that bullying is their God-given right. Those people claim that their beliefs give them the right to bully or discriminate a vulnerable group of people. As far as I'm concerned, NO ONE on this planet has that right.
I have submitted this project to:
