Freedom

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Hero and She-roes, paper Authentique
THANK YOU to all the men and women who serve and fight for our country!

Inspired by this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch, I used images from the Artistic Outpost Hero and She-roes plates.  All pattern paper is from the Authentique Glory Collection.The light blue panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug Stars Folder, then sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

The Flag is from the She-roes plate, colored with STAEDTLER Mars Graphic Markers, and stamped on Vanilla card stock.  The sweet little solider boy is from the Hero plate, stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, colored with STAEDTLER  Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils blended with Gamsol.  I cut out the image and adhered it to the flag panel with Scor-Tape sheets, then die cut with Spellbinders Circle Dies.  To embellish, I added a few RWB Stars tied with Twine.

Fantastic card Lisa, love the image of the boy set against the flag and the embossed stars in the background are perfect. Love the image showcased in a circle and the way you echoed the circles with two other circles at the top. Thank so much for joining in the Simon Days Dtamp and Show Challenge. Tracy x

Lisa, you have such a knack for making beautiful cards. This one is no exception. I love your star embossed background. The layering of the different strips on the front is so effective. That stamped and colorized image of the little boy saluting and the stars you've attached is the perfect embellishment. Thanks for sharing your wonderful card with us at Simon Say Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
