Bloggers Challenge - Wave the Flag

Happy Friday! This weeks Bloggers Challenge is Wave the Flag (or Red, White & Blue). If you'd like to play along with this weeks challenge, leave a link to your card in the comments section, I'd love to see your RWB cards!


Now before I get to the deets of my card, I know what you're thinking...Lot's of layers! Yep, I'm the queen of layering, it's a struggle for me not to add the layers! To create my card I stamped a portion of the Flag from Our Daily Bread Designs God Bless America in Black Archival on Watercolor paper and colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique. Before I colored the Blue, I applied White Gel Pen to the stars, so they would resist the ink.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs - God Bless America
Ink - Black Archival, Markers
Card Stock - Red, White, Navy
Other - Aquapainter, 1/4" Circle Punch

Be sure to click on the Bloggers Challenge Logo on my sidebar, to see what the talented Challenge members created this week! Don't forget to check back tomorrow, as I'll be posting my Red, White & Blue card for the SNR Card Universe Blog Hop, I'll also have a chance for you to win some Blog Candy!
