The Free & The Brave

I originally got this set to use in creating my husband's scrapbook from his days in the Army, as well as his 2 years in Iraq. I was looking through SCS and found a card that inspired me to create this one.

I stamped the image twice. Once for the flag, and again for the soldier. I colored both with a blender pen and SU! inks. I then cut out the soldier and adhered him to the flag using dimensionals to give it a 3-D look.

I colored the wording with SU! markers so that the different words would stand out with different colors.

I weathered the framing to give it a worn look, and put eyelets on the stars on the side.

Thanks for looking.
