Happy happy Independence Day American crafty peeps, and happy Saturday to those around the world!!!  It's time for fireworks here, and it's also time for another challenge in the new Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge!!!  The Curiosity Crew and I thank you for joining in on the last challenge for the paint resist...gorgeous entries to say the least... and of course for all of the comments, likes, and retweets!  You all truly rock!!!

Please take the time to visit every member of the Curiosity Crew (See below.) for not only some unique and gorgeous Frosted projects, but for a chance to win some extra goodies!
I pulled out old techniques and new to create this patriotic tag! It was such fun to make, and really put me into the celebrating spirit! I can't wait for fireworks tonight!
I cut a piece of Ranger's Gloss Cardstock to fit inside a #10 Black Surfaces Tag. I applied drops of Alcohol Ink onto the Gloss and used a can of compressed air to blow it out into my fireworks, as per Tim's technique that he showed us long ago. LOVE the results! Then I die cut pieces I would use for the tag and used the instructions suggested for the technique.
I added Salty Ocean Distress Ink to the bottom of the tag for a water look, and inked in the new Hickory Smoke to the top of the tag in the sky. I then stamped the New York Cityscape onto the tag in Jet Black.
I added drops of Picket Fence Distress Paint to the sky as well for more firework effect. I attached the Gloss to the tag by sewing around the borders and also adding a strip of Film Strip Ribbon to the bottom. Then I added the houses at the bottom.
I love this old stamp I've had for ages of the Star Spangled Banner, and I stamped it in Jet Black over the shield. I used a gold paint pen to add to the pieces as well. I also screwed in a Screw Eye into the Game Piece, and added charms. The star was added to the blue field in the flag as well.
 
 
 

I hope you can play along on this frosty challenge! Thanks for everything everyone!!! And be safe celebrating!!!

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
