Marine Hero

Today’s post, again, is in celebration of our armed forces! Sweet Stamp Shop is releasing the individual sets sets today, following up bundled sets yesterday.

I had to add those red stripes for the Marine uniform, it just wouldn’t be the same without them – even if they aren’t an exact replica of the real deal. There is just something about a man in uniform – am I right?! *insert smirk, and a hot flash here*

Stamp images in Copic friendly black ink, color and fussy cut. Stamp text background with beige ink. This one is by Heidi Swapp and may be retired as I have been unable to locate it. It has the perfect Constitution feel. Apply self-adhesive metallic tape, create tag and add fussy cut elements. A bit of Gilded Gold Stickles makes the hat band and medals shine.

Tip: If you want to add an accent stripe, like I did with the red, leave a white line when coloring with markers. That way the red colored pencil pops!

Copic colors: E51, E53 and E55 for skin. FB2, B95, B29, B39, C00, C2 and 100 (and red colored pencil) for uniform/hat.

Be sure to follow Sweet Stamp Shop on Instagram and Facebook for more inspiration. You can find their shop here.

If you find yourself in the company of a active or past service member, thank them – from all of us! Thank you for popping in today, I hope to see you again soon!

xox, Janette
