I thought I would also have a patriotic theme for my card as today is Memorial Day, a day to honor and remember the Men & Women that have gave their lives for our country. I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all that have served past & present. THANK YOU!
Since I wanted to use a Patriotic theme I had to figure out which stamp set to use and unfortunately I don't have many patriotic stamps. I had to actually pull this guy out of my stamps that I am someday going to get rid of. I had to put this set together as he has NEVER been used before. I bought this set just for this guy but never found a use for him until now! I think I am going to keep him around for a while!
I stamped this image on Ivory Natural CS and watercolored him with various colors of ink pads. After I was finished coloring I swiped the edges of the design over my Bordering Blue ink pad to give it a worn antique look. I have way to much DP so I dug into my stash and pulled out some Baroque Burgundy DP that was retired 5 years ago! I need to use more of this up before I buy anymore (like that's going to happen) LOL! That's why I like Amy's challenges, I think she uses DP in all of her cards!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!
