Hello! It's been quite a while since I've had time to make a card for a challenge. So, I think you'll forgive me for combining challenges today. This card was made for today's Ways To Use It Challenge: All Stars-Use a STAR on your card. There are stars on the image and flag. This also fits this week's Stampin' B's Challenge: collage.
I wanted to use this image today,as it has never seen ink! (There was a time in my life when EVERY stamp I had had seen ink at least 20 times....However, I've been busy with Markie's Science Fair, End of the Year projects, his chorus practices and a pregnant, very moody dog. Oh, all on top of running a business! LOL Thank goodness for an excellent staff!) May and June are traditionally very busy months for our company, and I'm double busy with a child off school, and now puppies who will be here, too. You know, separate kennels and time outside just didn't keep them apart...I tried. I REALLY tried. And, I'm going to have her fixed as soon as possible after the litter arrive. She's just too moody for my liking, and I don't want this "hormone change" to effect her like this, again.
The image was stamped in Adirondack Pitch Black and colored in with Memento Markers and an aqua Painter. Then, I went over places with Copic Markers. The papers are from a Premium Paper Craft Pack.
What do you think?
Finished card size: 5 1/2" square.
Total time to complete: 47 minutes.

Faith, what a wonderful collage card. Wish I could have came up with one this good. Your colors are always amazing and what a fantastic image. Forty-seven minutes - you are a pro. I takes me more than that to even make a simple card!
