Hello Everyone! Today I have a couple posts to put up and I hope I have enough time to do them. :)
For this card I used MelJen's Army Bear image and a sentiment I bought from Hobby Lobby. When I saw this sentiment "liberty and sparklers for all!" by Lizzie Anne I had to get it! So stinkin' cute! I colored my army bear with Copics and used my Marvey markers to color my stamp before I pressed it. Then I blinged it up with my Brand New(!!!) Stickles glitter in Yellow. I used my Martha Stewart Stars punch for the red and yellow stars and my background paper I bought from Beverly's in Citrus Heights California last summer when I was visiting my sister. I've been saving it for a special creation..I hope I did it justice as it is beautiful paper! I tried a new technique this time. I've seen "paper piercing" but have never tried it. I think it is something I will definitely need to work on! LOL! I was a little nervous piercing holes into my card considering once it's done, there is no turning back, but I think it all came out okay! For the inside I "created" my background paper by using my Trio Stars stamp. I stamped it using London Fog ink, stamping it off on scrap paper and then stamping it on my background paper.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
