Happy July 2nd!Â We are spending the weekend in Keystone Colorado with our son Chris- he is doing an Internship out here. He will be in the parade Monday- and that got me in a celebrating mood….this image reminded me of the ‘old days when we would dress the kids up in R/W/B and go to the Parade!Â (He has two sisters….we did not dress him up like this…LOL)……..
I have been enjoying using Digital images, and have recently discovered the Cryogen White card stock for coloring with Copics. It takes the ink in a way I cannot even describe!Â Well, I have learned that it takes sponging well too!Â I printed this cute Patriotic image from Guylou’s Inimitability on Cryogen White.Â IÂ paper piecing the dress and colored the skin and the sparkler with Copics. I added Sparkle with the Stardust Gelly Roll pen.Â Well, I wanted to add a bit more sparkley, so I punched the edge of a piece of Sparkle cardstock in ‘Abysse’ and added a couple of punched stars as well.
I added some stripes to go with my stars!Â I used the Red Pepper Thick Columns card stock. I LOVE the way this card stock added elegance to a card.Â This close-up shows the column stripes and the sparkle in the blue ‘Sparkle’ cardstock, as well as in the Cryogen White Cardstock.
The sentiment is from Create with TLC
Have a safe and FUN weekend!
God Bless the USA!!!
