Happy Memorial Day!  Today we celebrate and remember those who have fought and died for our freedom!  We do live in an awesome country.

This card is created with a couple of Technique Junkie stamps - Falling Flowers, and America Beats True -

I used red Art Anthology Gel Medium to paint the flower petals. I allowed that to dry well and then sprayed a light blue Art Anthology Colorations spray over the card. Then I quickly wiped off the excess.  Since the  gel medium resists the Coloration spray  the spray wipes up easily off of the red petals.  I mounted it on red then blue stock before adding the embellishments - except for ribbon being tucked around the red layer.

The focal image was colored with Copic markers and a matching blue was sponged on the surrounding areas of Lady Liberty. After this imaged was layered with red and blue card stock, Little white stars were adhered to the center of the flowers and under the word America!

This card shouts patriotism!  Have a great day and get inky!
