For this week’s challenge, our Blogger ‘Mom’ Lisa challenged us to a Patriotic theme. I have quite a few digital images printed out and waiting for me to ink them up, so I took this opportunity to use them.
I used the Sketch from Operation Write Home to make my first card combined with the OWH midweek Stars and Stripes Challenge of Paper Piecing. It took me a while to figure out how to get a 6 x 6 piece of SU DSP thru my printer, but as you can see I got it figured out. The image is by Stamping Boutique and the sentiment Create with TLC.
This next card is another Stamping Boutique image paired with a SU sentiment. The Sketch for this card is from Cards and Things.
Finally, I used an image by Create with TLC and lightly colored with Copic markers. I embossed the background white cardstock and the main image- it needed a little ‘pop’, so I added the red scalloped circle. I used Wisped Frames from the Technique Junkies for the sentiment part of the image and finished the card off with a nice organdy bow.
Bloggers Challenge players can be found here- lots of great Patriotic inspiration.
