Patriotic Eagle

Welcome to this week's Serendipity Stamps challenge! Today our mission was to create a patriotic card with a little sparkle! That's right, time to break out the glitter. I stamped the "Eagle" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the colored him with my Copic Markers. I just love how majestic this creature is.

It's hard to see, but I added Glossy Accents to the eagle's beak to make it look more realistic. It really does make a cool difference in person. The background is comprised of Basic Grey "Shine On" patterned paper and white card stock that I ran through a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  To add the sparkle, I hand cut small banners out of card stock that I covered with Scor-tape. I then coated the adhesive with Glitz Ritz micro-fine glitter and finally added some alpha stickers to spell out "USA".

Kathie, Your eagle is beautiful. I love how the colored stars on the top background transition into the embossed stars on the bottom - very clever! Your glittery USA banner is perfect!
