The May '10 Mind Wide Open Challenge (http://mind-wideopen.blogspot.com/) was to create a piece using this image of a woman wrapped in what looked to me like a flag. The theme for the challenge was "courage." Although technical problems prevented me from posting my creation on the website, this patriotic take on courage honors all of the veterans out there who have given and continue to give their lives for us. Bless them all and their families!
Using a distressed playing card as a background, images printed on matte presentation paper, cut out and distressed were attached along with one paper strip from a dictionary. Using a permanent stamp ink in dark red, the letter "C" and the word "courage," leaves and the clock face were stamped onto glued paper. Golden matte glaze helped seal both sides of this ATC.
