Yesterday as I was taking my walk, I saw a display in a window of 3 big red stars. My first thought was that it was very festive, but then I got a USSR-military feeling and I wondered how appropriate it would really be as a Christmas card.
And then I remembered that I have a son for whom this design is PERFECT. He's a member of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets and loves all things military. And yesterday, I bought him a new pair of shoes in size 11!!! My husband's feet are not much bigger than that, and Struan still has a few years of growing!
Anyway, I stamped the stars in Cherry cobbler, and then again, slightly to the left, in London Fog, to create the 3D effect. My favourite Stampabilities sentiment is perfect because it is all in caps, but not too serious. I added a simple frame cut with my square nestabilities to break up all the white (did you ever think I'd say that?)
PS - no problems with W8 so far (except that some of the keys on the keyboard are different and mysterious). Still, it will take a bit of time to get used to the little changes in how to do things. On the upside, Photoshop is WAY faster, so that makes me very happy!
