A very quick OLW card

I'm sooo late for this one but I have been pretty busy, well that's my excuse anyway!!

Susan over at Simplicity challenged us nearly a week ago to make a card with stars and stripes, in honour of American Independance day. I have made a card with somes stripes and a star,


I did a little research online to find out about hearts and wings and found a website, a tattoist actually but it made some sense of the symbolism involved if you're interested HERE
So peace, love and freedom to you all, :0) Gay xxx

I used
Heart and wings stamp from 7 Gypsies
Tim Holtz stripes
copics and distress to colour

Gay - you always manage to "think outside the box", and come up with something spectacular, and you have done it again with this amazing design.
I popped over to the Tattoo site and have learnt something new and fascinating - thanks so much.
Hugs, Sylvia xx

Wonderful card, Gay! Love that the star is itty bitty and the stripes just draw the eye up to that itty bitty star!

Cheryl said...

Wow Gay! I love your card. I never would have guessed that this was not a single image. I love how you combined the two stamps. Very artsy! Thanks for participating in this weeks OLW Challenge.

That is excellent use of the stripes. They give the card amazing perspective and feels 3-dimensional. Fab card.
