I created a patriotic red, white and blue card this month.
I started off creating a background with various Tim Holtz distress stains, paints, and inks.
But, I wasn't thrilled with background so I ended up cutting out my stars which are Seth Apter dies from the paper that was going to be the background.
Then I made another background. I stamped the background with a Seth Apter stamp multiple times with Versamark Ink. Then I used a couple of colors of red Distress inks to finish off the background. Then, I added a Tim Holtz chit chat sticker sentiment to finish it off.
But, I still felt like it was missing something so went around the edges of the stars with a
Dylusions white paint pen.
