The Stamping Boutique's Challenge #7

For the 7th Challenge over at The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog we were asked to use a Red, White and Blue theme in honor of upcoming Memorial Day.

I think this must have been one of the first images I downloaded from The Stamping Boutique last year.  I colored her with Copics and shaded with a bit of greys from my prismacolored pencils stash & a bit of Gamsol.  Mats are cherry cobbler and pacific point.    Because this might end up over at Operation Write Home, I left off any glitter/stickles.  The sentiment is from a set from Hero Arts, stamped in Pacific and punched with a circle punch.  I sponged edges of all layers, dp, etc., with pacific point.  Added some red brads to the sentiment, some red stitched grosgrain ribbon and called it a day.

Head over to The Stamping Boutique Store to see what else Tracey has that will fit the Patriotic theme.  You won't be disappointed.

I also submitted my card to the following challenges:

Craft Us Crazy - Remembrance
Stamp Insanity - Red, White & Blue
For Fun Challenges - Patriotic Colors
Scrapalicious USA - Memorial Day Theme
Simon Says Stamp - Stars & Stripes

Thanks for stopping by - as always - I love to hear what you have to say.
