Skipping Stones Design Feature Friday!!

Good morning!!

Today I am featuring an older stamp set from Skipping Stones Design called Home of the Brave

My son is graduating from High School tomorrow and has enrolled in the United States Army.  It has been on my mind a lot lately about what it takes to be an American Soldier and the thought process that was behind his deciding that the Army was right for him.

I am so proud of him for the decision he made.  It has not been very easy for me to watch this process. 

Today I made this card, using Home of the Brave by Skipping Stones Design

SSD-FF6311

The background was made using a resist technique and Tim Holtz Distress Stains.  First I stamped on my cardstock with Versamark and embossed Detail White Embossing Powder on them.  I then simply started daubing color from the Distress Stain wherever I wanted it.  The stains wiped off with a paper towel where I wanted to remove it from.  The Distress Stain dries quickly also.  I spritzed some beautiful gold shimmer of the entire background.  It wiped off with a paper towel where I wanted to remove it from.  I stamped the flag and sentiment.  It was that easy. 

Home of the Brave from Skipping Stones Design is on *sale* right now for $12.49!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today and peek at me card.  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!
