Hero - FabScraps Adrenaline Collection

This is my father-in-law.  He is a Hero.  He proudly served in WWII in the 101st Fox Company in  Belgium in the Battle of the Bulge; rough times, deadly times, difficult and bitter cold times but ever so important and heroic times. 

Now I am certain all military folk would tell me that I have his honorable technical title, his unit, his division and his position totally incorrect, but for me, a civilian,  I don't think so.  The only title I think important is Hero.  

This FabScraps Adrenaline collection honors all military Heros bravely serving all countries - and there are so many heros.   We all know them: Our grandparents, dads and uncles, our sons, our daughters, moms, sisters, the boy down the street, your best friend's child, those wounded soldiers who need our compassion,  and perhaps that bravest person you once knew who never came home. 

I celebrate them today.  I also thank FabScraps for honoring those bravest of people and giving us all a collection to boldly celebrate their lives and their heroic achievements.

The tank was inked was sprayed with Lindy's Cattail Copper Brown mist, then drizzled with Lindy's Stamp Gang Edelweiss Moss Green.  After that dried, I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge ink and stamped my title. 

My final treatment to make it pop was to coat with Ranger - Clear Rock Candy.  It really accentuates the rich colors. 

As a final touch, I coated the edges of my whole page in Clear Rock Candy as well to make the be strong and vibrant, rich with color. 

Thanks for looking.  Let's celebrate a Hero today!
