We Remember - 4th of July

Happy Independence Day!!!  I thought I'd share a card I recently made that helps celebrate the day - in a very special way for me.

The Brave

I'm really so proud of the images of the We Remember set.  It's a set I designed and it honors my family's experience serving our country.  In fact, the handsome gentleman on the left is my grandpa.  Here's a shot of him last year in May.  Isn't he darling?  Seeing him smile just makes me smile (and if you couldn't tell, I love him a ton).

Well, I stamped the photo image and colored with Copic markers.  Then, to give it an aged effect, I did the cracked glass technique.  I really like how it looks over a detailed image.  I had a little reflection from the cracked surface, so this isn't the best photo, but gives you an idea of the effect.
