A little about She-roes...
Women have always carried half the sky. During WWII, women began carrying their half in the armed forces as well. Whether they were nursing the sick or flying in the Women's Air Corp, this collection celebrates our "she-roes".

For this card I used Marker Watercoloring Technique, and SCS Sketch 228. The Flag and Hero sentiment are from the Artisic Outpost Hero Plate.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost She-roes, Hero
Ink - Black, Markers, Chocolate Chip
Card Stock - Watercolor, Ski Slope, Buckaroo Blue, Cranberry Crisp
Other - Sponge Dauber, Aquapainter, Star Punches


Cracker Jack...
Our love of baseball runs deep. Childhoods were spent at the ballpark either playing ourselves or watching our brothers.

For this card I morphed the Mono Masking Technique. I actually stamped on Colored card stock, omitting a step or two.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Cracker Jack
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Card Stock - Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa
Other - Eclipse Tape, Stipple Brush
