Land of Liberty - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, I'm so glad you stopped by today!  Thanks to the many players who played along with last weeks Monochromatic Color Challenge, it was wonderful to all the entries!  This weeks challenge is STARS - open to your interpretation of the theme.  You could add star embellies, paper with stars, use images of famous stars, you get the idea!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!


I used stamps from the Artistic Outpost Hero and She-roes collections, stamping in Black Archival.  The She-roe image is colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique, sponging the edges for a vintage feel.  The background panel is created using the Faux Washi Paper technique from a recent Technique Junkie Newsletter.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost - Hero, She-roes
Ink - Black Archival, Silver, Alcohol Inks, Brown
Card Stock - Red, Black, Glossy, Blue, Watercolor
Other - Embossing Folder, Dimensionals
