Happy 4th


Hello everyone! In the states we are celebrating Independence Day this weekend, but the holiday isn't until Monday. Anyways, here is my take on a couple of red, white and blue challenges.

I cut out the star that comes in the Blueprints #18 and made a stamp out of it using some fun foam. Stamped them randomly on some water color paper with versamark and heat embossed using white embossing powder.

Then I created the color panel using Zig real brush markers. The red still looks a little pinkish after going over it a number with times with the darkest red color.

Sentiment stamp is from Papertrey, Ink. Finally, I popped up a few of the stars with some foam tape to go with this weeks Freshly Made Sketch.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a fun and save holiday.



Entering this into the following:
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
