Rosie the Riveter

I created this ATC with a rubber stamp designed by Dawn Houser for Inkadinkado. Rosie the Riveter represents American women who worked in factories during World War II. These women did their part to support the war effort on the home front while the men were overseas in the military.

I stamped the image with brown ink and just highlighted a little with chalks. The ATC is embellished with a red rhinestone, a turquoise button and a colorful fabric bow. The colors used on this ATC are some of my favorite colors.

I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:

Totally Paper Crafts - #133 butterflies, bows & buttons
Crafty Cardmakers - #74 winged things
Little Miss Muffett - #43 writing (text on bandana)
