Wednesday Stamper - Country Flag Colors

I am cheating a bit for this week's Wednesday Stamper theme. This is something that I made a couple years ago. It was for a postcard swap on the Tennessee Stampers Yahoo group. I think the theme was 4th of July? Something patriotic anyway. It was one of my first experiments with fabric collage and also the first time I'd ever done an image transfer.

The little boy is my dad. His mom used to dress his brother and him in the most adorable little Army and Navy outfits. He was such a little cutie!
