'War'

'War'

This card started out to be for Remembrance Day..
I have had this Band of Soldiers stamp (from Deep Red) for a little while...and the idea was to stamp it all in black and white,
ghost the Australian flag behind it and put a few pops of red with poppies in the foreground.

What happened is something completely different!!!
I wanted to show the power of war.
It isn't pretty.

I have a deep respect and gratitude for those that fight to keep us safe.
You are all heroes.



For those that have made the ultimate sacrifice....
"Lest We Forget"

A really powerful card - the fire and blood reds of the frame and the sombre greys around the image - a beautiful commemoration of sacrifice.
