American Hero MMSC15 **2nd post today**
THIS IS MY 2ND POST TODAY SO PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE FIRST POST.
This is my entry for the MMSC 15 challenge. I had a hard time visualizing what I wanted to do, and then it hit me, a tribute to our American Military, and this is what I came up with. Check out the challenge over on Priscilla's blog here http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/2009/08/midnight-madness-by-priscilla-mmsc15.html
Paper: Various unknown DSP, Real Red, Not Quite Navy, beige, Brocade Blue
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Brocade Blue
Misc: star nail heads, ribbon, pop dots
The 4 corners are suppose to be "service stars" which is a red rectangle with a blue star in the middle representing that a loved one is deployed to a combat zone. However, I took artistic license and used gold nail heads, and stamped the rectangle in not quite navy. I distressed the main image and sponged brocade blue ink around the outside before mounting it on brocade blue and then night of navy.
Let me know what you think.
