I have had in mind to try this new TJ technique (called Camouflage) with this new stamp set So Far Away from Firecracker Designs by Pamela (FDP). I saw this stamp and just fell in love with it. The set has some wonderful sentiments that allow you to tailor your card many different ways. Pamela is a Junkie as well and offers a special discount to TJ members, so I jumped on the wagon and bought this set. Thanks Pamela!
The easy part was doing the technique and embossing the soldier stamp on the c/s. I decided to layer onto Basic Black and again on Chocolate Chip. Then was stumped. Then I decided to go with the flow of the stamped image and round the corners at the top and I put the brass brads at the bottom corners. Then I was really stumped because it just didn't look finished. I decided to add the brass eyelets and then leave it alone!
I have a friend who's husband recently left for a six month deployment. I think I'll send this to him.
