more previews!

These are some previews of the new sets to be released on August 10 from H&M stamps...They are called Hoorah and Hoorah sentiments.

I used watercolor pencils to color this one...I didn't want to do the camo green again...I hope somewhere someone is wearing brownish fatigues and likes this!

For the BG on this one I used my newest favorite technique...polished stone! I used old olive, creamy caramel, gold and Ranger butterscotch. I think it made a rather cool camo style! And how is it possible that I actually HAD a camo print ribbon! YIKES!

For this I searched through my scraps and came up with this lovely paper from CTMH...and dontcha LOOOVVEEE grungeboard! The star is from my big ol' pack of grungeboard...I inked it with the leftover from the polished stone!

Since I have no family or friends in the military, I am sending these to someone on SCS who collects cards for the troops along with a pile of other cards.  God Bless them all!

Don't forget about my BLOG CANDY on the previous post! You have until midnight on August 7th!
