I stamped the background three times, cut and colored the panels and adhered to my navy base. I also used a Spellbinders Butterfly Corner die to cut my main image panel, which is colored with Copics. Additionally I used a couple SU! Punches, Spellbinders Grommet Tags as well as the ODBD Custom Elegant Ovals die for some of the elements. The stars embossing folder and distressed stripes folder are CB. I watercolored the old flag background with T Holtz Distress markers. Everything is sponged with T Holtz Fired Brick ink. A tiny ribbon and brad are the only embellishments, but the bookmark with America on it is removeable as a permanent reminder of the blessings we have enjoyed here in America... and these blessings came at a great price for many! A special thank you to all who gave some, and especially to those who gave all for our freedom!
This week's Shining the Light Challenge on the ODBD blog is Red, White and Blue or Patriotic ... and you can express it any way you'd like! Why don't you grab some red white and blue paper and ink and play along for a chance to win a prize!!!
Hugs & Blessings,
