Iwo Jima

Hi, Stamping Friends.  Today I am back with a couple of cards made with  the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Iwo Jima.

For the first card, I started by using the Magical Masking Tape Technique.  I  swiped the sticky side of the masking tape across my ink pad and then transferred the ink to my card stock to create the flag background.  I stamped the image over flag.  I really like this technique and had not used it in a while.  

For my second card, I used my Heidi Pettie Cloud Stencil and blue ink to make my sky with the puffy clouds.  I then stamped the Iwo Jima image and the sentiment from the Thank You Hero  stamp set over the clouds to complete my card.

Thank you, for stopping in today.  I always appreciate your visits.
