It's getting close to the time the United States celebrates Her independence, and there have been a few challenges asking for red, white, and blue, so I thought I would make this plaque to commemorate the occasion. I also wanted to combine this with the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group challenge of "circles & hearts" from Wendy's Book 3. I will link it up to the Sunday Stamper and The Artistic Stamper's challenges of "red, white, and blue".
I made a boo boo and reversed my 4 and 7, but I guess it can represent a European style date.
|First, I adhered a quarter sheet of Tim's 4th of July collage paper to an Art Part, and then adhered the top part completing the frame.|
|I cut strips from old blue jeans and adhered them to the frame, allowing the ends to fray.|
|On the sides of the frame, I stamped Wendy's ticking image in Manganese Archival Ink. I stamped the star border using Snow Cap Acrylic Paint Dabber.|
|I painted stripes of red and white on the ticking image using Paint Dabbers.|
|I inked the flowers with Barn Door and then stamped the coordinating flower image on them in Jet Black Archival.|

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
