Bloggers Challenge Theme - Patriotic

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! With Veterans Day next week, and falling before the next Bloggers Challenge, I decided to issue a Patriotic Theme as this weeks challenge theme.  Here I've used a number of Technique Junkie Techniques along with an image from the Artistic Outpost Hero Plate to create my card.


The Background panel is created with the Texture Fades Technique, the focal image is done with the Watercolor Distress and Out of the Box Techniques.

Don't forget today is the last day to save 20% on all rubber stamps (mounted and unmounted) at Artistic Outpost, simply use the code: Anniversary at check out to receive your discount.
