Using My Tools Thursday # 39 - OWH Salute

This is a quick post in honor of the July 4th holiday tomorrow.  I thought I would show you some ANY Hero cards I made to send to Operation Write Home That means I'll be writing a little thank you note inside thanking the overseas soldiers for the sacrifices they make so that I can enjoy all the wonderful things I enjoy here in the U.S. You can find more about Operation Write Home here. 

For these cards I used embossed the background and then dragged my ink pad over the top.
The stamped images are from My Favorite Things and then I colored them in with Copic Markers.

I hope you enjoy your Fourth of July holiday and find tmie this weekend to make something beautiful!

Lovely cards! The idea of dragging the ink pad over the embossed image is one I'll have to try. Have a Happy 4th of July to you and yours.

Great cards, and love your technique! I've tried inking over an embossed surface, with mixed results. You did a wonderful job with that! Tfs!
