The Flag background stamp is from Our Daily Bread and it's called "Old Flag", I tried to get a link but the site seems to be temporarily unavailable.
The other image is from Deep Red Stamps and it's called Band of Soldiers , I bought it a while ago through the Operation Write Home organization, who sent out hundreds and hundreds of hand made cards to our Troops overseas.
Now, the OWH stopped the project back in August of this year, mainly because the number of Service Members has dropped to a record low, which is great news so, like they said, more and more Soldiers are able to come home and communicate with their families across the dinner table instead of by mail.
I sent just 2 boxes of cards to the OWH back in 2013 and 2014, so hopefully my cards brought smiles and comfort to the families of this brave and amazing Soldiers.
I stamped the Flag with Gray Stazon Ink onto a panel of Canson water color paper and I colored with the aqua painter and several washes of Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler SU markers.
After it dried, I stamped the line of Soldiers with Stazon Jet Black ink on top.
The sentiment was printed on a piece of Vellum and I just added 3 little confetti stars in Red, White and Blue for a little bling.
Here is the Addicted to CAS code word.
Thank you for stopping by again, as you can probably suspect, I just love making cards and posting them on my little blog. It's a thrill for me when I read your comments.
Till next time, (maybe later?? LOL!!) happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
