America I Love


This is a NEW level A set from our NEW Inspiration catalog - I love the retro feel of this image. I didn't relize how challenging it would be for me to color - I attempted with my copics, couldn't save it!!! Then I went to my prisma pencils and OMS and had a little more control where the color was going. I did use a Atyou gold pen to add a bit of sparkle to the banner and red to dot some flowers. I cut out and distressed the edges with a pair of scissors (can't find my distresser) mounted it on some downloaded stars paper mounted on red, then used red/white bakers twine punched stars in the corner and my card base is blue. I took my cloud stencil and made soft fluffy clouds in the sky. Hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th.

I love this! The stars in the corners really add to the card and so does the twine. Great coloring, too!
