Hero!

Here we are at the start of May and that means a new Product Focus at Artistic Outpost and we are being "Patriotic"! I chose stamps from the "Hero" collection and you will just have to visit the rest of the team to see what they came up with right here Kate, Shari, Tracy, Lisa, Gerrie. All stamps is the Patriotic category are also 20% off through May 9th as well!
The flag image was colored with Stampin Up markers Not Quite Navy, Night of Navy, Real Red and Black. After I huffed and puffed to reactivate the inks (and felt dizzy), I stamped the image to white card stock. The background was then inked over in Distress Stormy Sky, Fired Brick and shaded with Vintage Photo and Black Soot in the corners.
I decided to collage images around the flag, which were stamped in Black Archival. The two Hero sentiments were stamped in Black Archival as well and then clear embossed. I stamped a third Hero and cut it apart and shaded around the edges with red and blue!
As this is the beginning of the month, the new "Show Us Your AO Art" has started and we would love to have your AO inky goodness join us! Thank you for visiting me today and have a wonderful week!
