Be Strong

With it being Flag Day, I created a card using the Old Flag Background and Not Forgotten sets from Our Daily Bread Designs.

The images are stamped in Black Archival on scrap pieces of Authentinque pattern paper, colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, blending the color with Gamsol.  After coloring I crinkled the stamped colored panels, then added some Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I embossed a piece of the Authentique paper then highlighted with the Antique Linen Ink.
