Stars and Stripes

This tag uses some Wendy Vecchi stamps for the background, my first time using them. The stripes and mesh were stamped in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, and then areas were masked off into stripes and inked with Distress Pads and a foam applicator.

The stars were stamped using a black Memento ink pad, and the large stars were coloured with a lime green promarker, the small with a white gel pen. Finally the edges were distressed with more Brushed Corduroy ink.
