Memorial Day Veteran Thank you with Color & Contour

Happy Memorial Day!  Today, we commemorate the lives of many heros who fell in the line of duty protecting our country from harm and ensuring our freedoms.  Thank you...we will never forget you!

The Color & Contour stamp set with coordinating Scalloped Contours Dies sets the tone for this Red, White & Blue Thank You in recognition of our wonderful veteran heros. I was inspired from a card found in our new Annual catalog focusing on our Blending Brushes to add gradients of color.

After die cutting the Scalloped Contour frame, I used a scrap piece of paper to create my gradient layers with a Blending Brush and Real Red ink.  A sheet of small Grid paper helped me ensure my lines would be straight across and not "kitty-whompus".  The flower image was inked with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink with the speckles stamped as a second rendition with Misty Moonlight ink.

There's a new pack of paper that is sooo pretty!  Its the Gold & Rose Metallic 6" x 6" Specialty paper and I couldn't pass up adding it to the Misty Moonlight card base.  It also stands as a scalloped circle matte behind the clear embossed sentiment on Vellum cardstock.  Just the right amount of bling.  The coloring options are endless to create something for any occasion.

I demonstrated this card and Blending Brushes gradient technique during my Sunday Stampin' Dreams online card class yesterday.  You can catch the replay here
