Military Collage

Happy Tuesday, hope you all enjoyed the Labor Day holiday!  I've got some exciting news to share with you today, I'm a Guest Designer for Firecracker Designs this month!  Throughout the month of September I'll be sharing creations made with some of Pamela's wonderful  images.  Firecracker Designs also offer Digi images, and you can find some FREE Digital Freebies here.

This week I used the So Far Away stamp set to create my card

The background on my card is created using the Sanded Core'dinations technique, I thought it was just perfect to use with this image.  The image is stamped on Matte card stock with Black Archival ink. Once dry, I used the Pulled Glimmers Technique to add color to the background, then added color to the main image with an H20 Brush and Distress Inks.
