Sneak Peek: You are not forgotten
Hello friends! I have a sneaky peek for you today! I am using two new wonderful sets from Our Daily Bread designs and two older sets as well. I used the Old Flag Background stamp and Not Forgotten, which are being released on July 1, and if you look carefully you can see the words from I Pledge of Allegiance on the left side. I also used my Thank You sentiment from the ODBD Mini Tags Two.
For the flag background stamp, I colored with Prisma Pencils and Odor Free Mineral Spirits to blend. I found this image very easy to color as there is lots of shading in it to help you along, but I didn't want to use that much ink from my Copics.... so the Prismas worked fine! I then did a lot of distressing by sponging with TH Distress Walnut Stain and Antique Linen on the insides. I stamped You are not forgotten on a speckled bookmark I had, cut it to length, spritzed it with water, crumpled it up, rubbed distress ink directly on it to pick up those lines, then I stamped parts of the image from this set on it, picking up the postal mark and some print. I sponged Antique Linen all over it and sponged the edges with Walnut Stain. The lined paper is from a K&Co called Flora & Fauna Ledger Paper. I love this pad! It has a loose leaf binding and I tore a piece and used all the little torn edges that remained, sponging and distressing some more after stamping the main image and the thank you sentiment, and tearing the pieces to shape. The base is Gina K Craft. The bracket die on the left is THoltz and the File Closures were from the wedding dept. at M's. I did some stitching and added a couple brads.
I am excited about these new sets! I can't wait to show you more! July 1.... 8am at the ODBD Blog will be our Release Blog Hop! Great prizes and inspiration... hope to see you then!
