I have Blog Candy HERE thru 7/5
Happy July 2nd! We are spending the weekend in Keystone Colorado with our son- he is doing an Internship out here. He will be in the parade Monday- and that got me in a celebrating mood....this image reminded me of the 'old days when we would dress the kids up in R/W/B and go to the Parade!
(I have two daughter's also.......LOL).
I have been enjoying using Digital images, and have recently discovered the Paper Temptress Cryogen White card stock for coloring with Copics. It takes the ink in a way I cannot even describe! Well, I have learned that it takes sponging well too! I printed this cute image from Guylou's Inimitability on Cryogen White. I paper piecing the dress and colored the skin and the sparkler with Copics. I added Sparkle with the Stardust Gelly Roll pen. Well, I wanted to add a bit more sparkle, so I punched the edge of a piece of Paper Temptress Sparkle cardstock in 'Abysse' and added a couple of punched stars as well.
I added some stripes to go with my stars! I LOVE the way this card stock added elegance to a card with the columns. This close-up shows the stripes and the sparkle in the blue 'Sparkle' cardstock, as well as in the Cryogen White Cardstock. Sentiment Create with TLC.
Have a safe and FUN weekend!
God Bless the USA!!!
