Oh boy! Two patriotic cards in a row. Yeah, I guess you could say I'm running a bit behind, but I did want to use this lovely image drawn by a girl who just turned 9, the daughter of my friend Cristena Concialloni-Bagne of Copictopia, named Meadow. I'll tell you a bit more about this image in a minute. I've used the sketch from the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch challenge, a digital background and sentiment from the Gecko Galz Show us Your Stars and Stripes collage set. I've cut and matted Meadow's Eagle with Spellbinders Nested Ovals and added faceted star embellies.
Here's the sketch.
Here's a closeup of the image drawn by that talented artist Meadow Bagne. I still can't believe that Meadow was still just 8 years old when she drew it. (She's had a birthday since then, so a belated Happy Birthday, Meadow.) Isn't it amazing!?! I bought this image as part of a Memorial Day fundraiser for the Gary Sinise Foundation for veterans, sponsored by Meadow's Mom in the Paper Crafting Support Group on FB and colored it with Copics to enter in a coloring challenge for the event. About time I got it on a card. The image was exclusive to the event, but personally I think Cristena should offer it for sale on Copictopia, don't you?
I'm also entering this in the DL.Art July Linky Challenge, Create and Inspire #64 July AG, Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #61 AG, 2 Crafty Critter Crazies #4 July AG/w Animal, the Corrosive Challenge #7 July AG, Country View Crafts July Things with Wings, Crafty Animals #4 July AG w/Animals, Crafty Girls June 15th challenge AG w/optional masculine, TTRCD week of July 11 AG and Creatalicious AG w/optional Red, White, and Blue.
