Let Freedom Ring

This sweet image is one of my favorites from the Artistic Outpost Hero plate.  I started out with the Watercolor Distress Technique, adding the technique to my already stamped Watercolor paper.  Then went back in and colored with an H20 Brush and Weathered Wood Distress Inks.

The Star Shaped card fits the recent Challenge on the Cards Blog and also City Crafter.  Here I used the Mono Dies Technique to add smaller punched stars to the base card.  Behind the image I added a piece of Gold Netting, which I altered with Silver paints from Creative Inspirations Paints so that it would coordinate with the Silver brad.


On the inside I added the sentiment on a scrap of leftover Watercolor Paper.

Ink - Black Archival, Distress Inks Tattered Rose, Weathered Wood
