September 11 brings back a flood of memories every year when we remember that day 13 years ago
when the US was hit by overwhelming sadness as acts of terrorism changed so many lives forever. The SCS Ways to Use It challenge is to "make it monumental"....meaning we are to honor our heroes by incorporating elements of stone, granite, marble, etc.  on our creations.  I went with some Ferro Special Effect Paste by Creative Imaginations that has actual natural ground stone in the mixture and added it to Soft Stone cardstock using a TCW mini basketweave stencil.  It has a very hardened and rough texture IRL and I thought it would be perfect for this challenge!  I'm also playing along with Jen's Deconstructed Sketch Challenge.

STAMPS: ODBD Old Flag Background, ODBD Not Forgotten.
PAPER: Soft Stone by PTI, White, Real Red.
INK: Night of Navy, TH Distress markers - Barn Door and Faded Jeans.
