Happy Memorial Day!

 The Funkie Junkie Inspiration Ave is focused this time on celebrating Americana.  I used this as an opportunity to say a thank you to all our veterans and active United States Military personnel. 

The new Stampers Anonymous stamp set The Inspector has an image that reminded me of a uniform and I  used it to inspire my card.  

To create my background I started with stamping the border with the long stamp that had stripes and a star.  It fit perfectly along the sides. 

Next I sponged some stripes using the stencil and red dye ink across the top.  I came back over the red ink and added a soft sponging of brown dye ink.  

Then the stars were sponged over the background using the blue dye ink and then another coat of brown dye ink.  I repeated this process on a die cut star to add to the front of the rosette. 

The inspector was stamped twice in blue ink and the goggles and hat were fussy cut and layered over the bottom image.  

I typed up the words and printed them out to cut up and place on the card.  I used the rosette die cut and Idea-Ology Tim Holtz backdrop paper.  I sponged the surface with red and brown dye ink after assembling the rosette.

I stamped and tried the inspector with different colored inks and a different background while exploring the Americana ideas.

A big thank you to our veterans and active and serving Military Forces!
