Stars & Stripes

Happy Monday and I hope you are all doing well. Today, I’m playing along with the Visible Image Facebook Challenge for May which is Red, White, and Blue. Click here for the link to play along.

I started out by smooshing Distress Ink in Candied Apple and Salty Ocean on my craft mat and picking up the ink with Bristol Smooth paper.

Once my background dried, I added the safety pin stamp from the Don’t Judge set with Archival Black ink. It’s been a tough year for all of us and in the United States (as many countries) we’ve have been through other hard times and have come through stronger.  I like the look of the tears being held together with safety pins signifying our past tough times as a nation but we’re still strong.

I used the Stars and Stripes stencil with texture paste and added WOW! Embossing White Twinkle for some pretty shine.

I finished my card with the sentiment from the Visible Image Brave & Strong set which I think is perfect for the time we are going through with COVID-19.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week.
