Work of Art

… is one of the hottest new stamp sets in the new catalog. Matter of fact it seems to be on backorder still. Sorry Becky for not getting it in for you yet…

For my downline meeting this month I made this card:

And few weeks ago we had card requests for some of our young service men and this is the version that I mailed out to one of them.

Note, I didn’t use the heart on the flag since I don’t know him all that well… I didn’t want to scare him Winking smile   I simply used my blender pen and doodled stars onto the inked up stamp and removed ink… Once stamped I drew over them with a sparkle pen.

Looking back, I like the version with the heart on it better, but only because I stamped off every other red strip and that helps the sentiment to come out better! A little distressing around the edges of the white layer, just gives it that rugged look that I wanted…

Supplies used:

 

Come back tomorrow and you will see lots more red/white/blue creations!
