I recently joined a swap where we altered three cabinet cards in a "Patriotic" theme. These are the 3 cards that I altered and sent on to their recipients.
"Celebrate America" - with glittering party banner, the Stars and Stripes, and the Declaration of Independence.
Betsy Ross with her Stars and Stripes and copy of the Declaration of Independence. I colored her dress, hair and face with chalk. Stippled the background using chalk inks to give it depth and a vintage feel.
Betsy Ross again, with her sewing label, stitches and trinkets, and the Stars and Stripes. I do think that her hair bow is a bit "micky mousish" though.
Celebrating an early 4th of July!
