Featured Set: The Free and the Brave

The Free and The Brave is one of my favorite Stampin Up sets, sadly, it is retiring in just a few days. Being in the military, this set is perfect for military events such as promotion and retirement ceremonies.

This first card uses Creamy Caramel and whisper white. The first image is stamped in blue Staz on Ink, distressed with Red Staz on ink, I water colored the flag and soldier using my Stampin Pastels and aqua pen.

This card uses a depth of field like techniue to stamp the stars in several colors of blue, Bashfull Blue, Almost Navy, Night of Navy and Bordering on Blue. The cardstock was Real Red and Brilliant Blue

This one is based on a case from Split Coast Stampers, another set of stars stamped in Moonlight White and versamark, allthough, the stamp had some red color remaining on it, so the stars on the Real Red cardstock didnt quite come out clear, but more like a red tint. The soldier is also stamped with Versa mark ink, Brilliant Blue, Real red and Creamy Caramel make up the card and More Blasing Red Staz On, to stamp the sentiment.
