Writing Home

Hello.  Today I'm sharing with you a card I made for the one of the Musical Challenges at Splitcoaststampers.  I love this retired Stampin Up! set called Godspeed since it makes perfect cards for our military. 

For this challenge, I dusted off my Stampin Up! Godspeed set and stamped it in memento tuxedo black ink onto white card stock before coloring with prismacolor markers and stippling caramel ink around the edges.  While doing the background, I pulled out Stampin Up! soft suede card stock and ink (a color I don't use often) and stamped the helmet in those colors.  Pulling out some vintage brads and  placing the image at an angle seemed to finish things off nicely.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin Up! Soft Suede
