Egyptian Revolution 2011 by jonathoncomfortreed Egyptian Revolution 2011 by jonathoncomfortreed
Inspiration
I've been avidly watching the events unfolding in Egypt in the last couple of weeks. I've read countless articles, downloaded several video clips and discussed it with as many people as possible. Possibly one of the reasons I'm so engrossed it is because just last year I learned about Mubarak's regime, and so it's really cool to see something that was taught to me as fact become completely torn apart. If that makes sense.

We're watching history in the making.


Technique
This was a relatively simple stamp to make. I just took a stamp template, added the flag colours and words.

I would like to briefly point out that I do recognize that the revolution is far from over, even if Mubarak has stepped down. But I think this stamp could be useful far into the future as a piece of remembrance of this monumental event that we all witnessed together.

:shrug: I like the idea.


Feel free to display this stamp anywhere!

(unfortunately, only for Premium Members)

Special mentions
The stamp template is from a stock .psd file by $zilla774.

Well I haven't gone to Tahrir square....yes, I'm such a caword :( But I sat there all the time in front of TV, I don't know how or why, but I had a feeling we'll win :D The annoying thing is many people I know where against the revolution but after it won, they were with it XC I felt very angry!

I witnessed the Egyptian revolution, and watched as other countries rose up in defiance of their government... and I was proud to witness the historic moments!

I wish I could have... but I was at school when the vice president gave the announcement. Although I did see the aftermath (my Economics teacher let us watch CNN and AlJazeera in class!)

It's pretty overwhelming to think that this is something that will be discussed for generations to come and we were here to see it. I'm anxiously waiting to see what kind of effect this will have on the other countries in the Middle East, now that their main stabilizing force is gone.

Yeah, I totally agree. :faint:
And funny that you should say that, considering what's going on now. :omg:

Oh geez, have you seen the most recent developments in Libya? :[ It's awful. That revolution's going to be a lot more bloody than Egypt's, and it's only beginning. I shudder to think what will happen if the US ends up intervening.

I LOVE THIS.
We'd been following the events in History class for the past week or so and Friday, kid walks in and goes IT'S OVER. HE RESIGNED.
We all got up and cheered.
