Bloggers Challenge - Red, White and Blue

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with last weeks For the Grad Challenge.  This weeks challenge is Red, White and Blue.

In honor of the Memorial Day holiday here in the US on Monday, I used this weeks colors to create a patriotic card, using the Hero plate from Artistic Outpost.


The sweet little solider boy is stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then colored with STAEDTLER Ergo-Soft Pencils, blending with Gamsol.  All papers are from the Bo Bunny Anthem Collection.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Hero
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Cherry, Black, Watercolor
Other -BoBunny Anthem Pattern Paper Collection, Ink Blending Tool, Gamsol
