Honoring all Who Served

Today we honor ALL American veterans, both living and dead for their dedicated and loyal service to our country. Thank You for the sacrifices you have made in your lives to keep our country free.

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Hero/She-roes
Inspired by sketch at OWH Stars and Stamps, I used papers from Authentique Old Glory Collection, cutting the "fishtale" piece (Silhouette Labels 7) using the Silhouette Cameo.  The sweet image is from the Artistic Outpost Hero plate, the sentiment is from the She-roes plate.  The image is stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then colored with STAEDTLER Mars Graphic WC Markers and Karat Aquarell WC Pencils blended with Gamsol.  I embossed  the Bazzill card stock with the Cuttlebug Stars folder, then highlighted the stars with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
