Joan of Arc...One Powerful Hour Style

This week over at One Powerful Hour Nancy has set a fabulous theme...

Military Women

What a wonderful way to honor not only our military but the women who are among these fine leaders.

When I think Military Women I really think about today's women but that did not really work with my art style. After thinking on it for a bit I decided to use an image of Joan of Arc that I found on the web.

The base that I built on is a really shinny silver that did not come across in this photo at all. I stamped it with a background stamp from Stamp Camp and then affixed the stained glass window and the image of Joan. Stamped some french script across the bottom and then added the German scrap. As a finishing touch I added the cross in the same silver paper as the background and of course I had to add rhinestones.

Not my best piece but I do like it and it looks totally different in person.

I really like this piece. Joan of Arc is a great choice and like the other images you combined with her.
