Distress Collage Medium Proud Patriotic Card

Hello Crafty People! Since Memorial Day is right around the corner here in the U.S., I thought I'd show you this simple simple patriotic card, using Tim Holtz Distress Crazing Collage Medium from Ranger, and lots of ephemera. This card was also showcased at Creativation this year in the Ranger booth.
Gather and cut all the papers (Cut paper into tags.) and ephemera you want to use and arrange them as you like. Ink the edges of everything with Black Soot or Walnut Stain Archival.
Very quickly, as Collage Medium dries fast...begin brushing on the Crazing and then sticking your papers, ephemera, and textures in place, with brushing over them as well. When dried, stitch around what you wish, and attach the card to a base card in black. Adhere charms on with Multi Medium.
The most sincere thanks to all those who have served and have died for our country. I am so proud to be an American.


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
