This week's challenge at CropStop is to show us your National colors. I live in the U.S.A. so that means red, white & blue! It's also approaching the anniversary of our Nation's Independence Day, July 4th. To top it all off, my 12-year wedding anniversary to the most wonderful, supportive, loving, and AMAZING man is July 3rd! We've been together a total of 17 years and I love him more now than I ever have. Furthermore, he's an awesome father and very hands on with our son, which makes me appreciate and love him even more. To say the least, I am very blessed!
Today, I decided to use Tilda in Star Dress....she's very patriotic waving her flag....perfect for this challenge! I colored her with Copics and then did the shading on her face and clothes with chalk. I added Stardust Stickles to the red areas of her dress, hair bows, and white stars. I also added Glossy Accents to her white shoes to give them that patent leather look.
I made another Circle Easel Card and got the directions from Norma's Blog here. I used my SB Classic Scalloped Circles Large, Scor-Pal and Scor-Tape to put the card together. The dp on the top is from Creative Imaginations and the dp on the bottom is from The Paper Studio. The red, felt ribbon is from Michael's "Celebrate It" line. The glittery, blue swirls are made by Jolee's. The star embellishment on the ribbon and the sentiment are Americana Grand Adhesions Dimensional Stickers from K&Company.
The red chipboard frame is from CTMH. It started off white and I inked it with red ink. The white dashed lines are embossed on the chipboard and show through when you add the ink. The white pearls are also CTMH.
Here's a side view. I raised Tilda up on pop-dots.
Well, that's it for me! I've got a busy weekend ahead of me. Hubby has already got a hotel reserved for the Anniversary weekend, but didn't tell me which one. We are keeping this one low-key since we're heading to WA to see my family in a few weeks. I do know that there will be a little shopping involved. I'm always wanting scrapbook stuff, but this time I might venture out and do something different....we'll see, LOL!
Have a great weekend and see you back here on Monday!
