I do Independence Day in January. That might again have something to do with life in the frozen tundra where I am much more apt to think about warm July in January than I am to think about cold December in July. LOL.
Seriously, I have had this image since early December when I purchased it and a couple other images from Eat Cake Graphics. I love everything about this stamp from the so-true sentiment to the lineup of cute kids, and I just couldn’t wait any long to use it.
As for the card, it is my “signature simple,” of course. I used both markers and a blending pen with stamp pad ink to color my image. The shading was accomplished with my trusty Dove blending pen (I love that thing) and Juniper ink.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Holiday Red, and Outdoor Denim cardstock; Black, Grey Wool, Outdoor Denim, Chocolate, Bamboo, Citrus Leaf, Brown Bag, Bubblegum, and Juniper ink pads; Holiday Red, Sunny Yellow, Autumn Terracotta, Baby Pink, and Tombow #580 Flesh markers; Eat Cake Graphics Land of the Free stamp; Fiskars Apron Lace border punch; Dove blending pen; Sanding block.
Happy Hump Day! Even though it is cold and blustery this evening – a perfect night to stay home – husband has cabin fever and wants to go out for supper. With no desire to cook, I will accommodate his need to get out of the house.
Thanks for all your sweet comments. They mean the world to me! Later…
