This week over at Inspired Stamps we were to create artwork using a Character and Scripture (this was to be posted with the Tuesday group, but I forgot the schedule change). Above is what I came up with. As most of you know my son Jimmy is leaving for boot camp here soon. Actually 3 days from now and it is really hitting home with this Momma. Most days have tears involved with them sometime during the day and my son and I are in the process of cleaning up his room (deep cleaning), so I have been scatter brained more than normal.
This is a card I am planning on sending him, sometime in the near future. Usually when I stamp the HLO: Soldier with Flag, I paper piece him to give him his color and dimension. With today's image I wanted to create the feeling of something missing, the soldier. So I embossed the HLO using clear embossing powder on white glossy paper then inked my browns and greens over it to create a camo paper. I then paired it with the scripture from the Psalm 91 Protection stamp set, to create my card front.
On the inside I inked my edges with dessert sand and then stamped the HLO:Soldier with Flag again in opposite corners in Desert Sand and the "Missing you and thanking God that He is there with you!" Sentiment from the Psalm 91 Protection Set in Black.
