Not Forgotten - Something Old/Something New

Happy Wednesday, thanks for stopping by today!  It's a good think I don't share WOYWW, as my studio is in disarray at the moment, but I did manage to clear a spot so I could play along with a few challenges before I get behind again this week!  I started out with The Kraft Journal's Something Old/Something New Challenge.  My new product - stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs (Not Forgotten and Old Flag Background) which are being released on July 1st, and Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One; my old product - Distress Inks, card stock, Spellbinders Oval Dies and Distress Tool.

The images are stamps in Ranger Black Archival on White card stock, then colored with Distress Inks and an H20 Brush.  I sponged and distressed  the edges with Old Paper and Walnut Stain inks, then did some creative layering with Spellbinders dies.  I used a SAMJ to add the sentiment in Black.



Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Not Forgotten/Old Flag Background
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Distress Ink Old Paper, Walnut Stain, Fired Brick, Faded Jeans
Card Stock - Kraft, Red, Black, White
Other - Big Shot, Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One, Spellbinders Oval Dies, SAMJ, Craft Sheet, Ink Blending Tool, Distress Tool, H20 Brush

Other Challenges Entered:
Tuesday Throwdown - Color Challenge, Celebrate the Occasion - 4th of July, Woodware USA - Patriotic, Paper and Such - Red/Kraft/Blue, Divas by Design - Die Cuts, Our Daily Bread Designs - Anything Goes using ODBD stamps, Simon Says Stamps and Show a Word

Have a great day!
