Red, White & Blue
As you may have noticed, I've not been very productive lately. Puppy Fritz has turned my world on end taking almost all my time when I'm not at work. Apparently, Mr Mojo isn't getting enough attention--hard to make a card worth posting. However, I was determined to get one 4th of July card made. My sister would be very disappointed not to get one. I love vellum & use it quite a bit, so thought I'd make one for the PTI MIM challenge. I wanted to use a technique I learned when I began stamping years ago. You stamp a solid image on the card front & the outline image on a vellum overlay--not necessarily exactly lined up. I've always loved that look, but hadn't done it for a long time. I used the star from PTI Framed Out 1 stamped in Brilliance Rocket Red. Since there isn't an outline star in the set, I used my Quickie Glue pen to draw the outline on the vellum & dumped on prisma glitter--very simple. The sentiment is from the Oregon company--Peddler's Pack--& is stamped in Brilliance Mediterranean Blue. The card front stitching is done with the Lil' Inkers die. Turns out my card meets the requirements at City Crafter (first time entering there) & SSS Monday & SSS Wed. I do appreciate hearing from you & will keep in touch the best I can. Enjoy your weekend.
