Freedom Rider

Lest we never forget our American freedom fighters. The eagle/flag design is a free/royalty free graphic from the internet. The word FREEDOM was computer generated. The stamp is Sparkle N Sprinkle's Victory 1339-284G from Motorcycles Stamp Set 284. To make the ink distressed edges around the die cut match the aged color of red in the flag, I first applied a red pigment ink, then went over it with a medium/light brown pigment ink. After coloring the motorcycle, I applied Glossy Accents to make it appear as shiny paint. And also added and heat set Vanilla Ice EP265 embossing power on the eagle's stars and on the tips of each red star.

  1. WOWOW! Jaw dropping! What a great patriotic feel in this card! It feels all summery, even tho the card was made in time for President's Day. The gold details in the eagle and star are great! and the highlights in the motor cycle look fantastic!
