Regal And Proud Blog Hop Day 3


This set was so aptly named, the images are so majestic and patriotic. I love the nature themed stamps, they are really perfect for almost any occasion. For this card I used the regal eagle and stamped him in a dark brown and highlighted him with Copic markers E51, G21, Y32, and YR24 (Copics are now available at MFP!). The designer paper is an older retired one from SU and the layout is from Card Patterns Sketch76. Hope you like it!
