Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday - Let's Hear it For the Red, White and Blue

Happy Friday!! I hope you had a wonderful week!! For all of my USA friends, I hope you have fun plans for the Memorial Day weekend!! Stay safe if you are traveling!! I'm away and won't be back to mid-week, so I probably won't be able to visit you for a few days. I will try to check in but I can't make any promises :)


Friday means a Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces!! For our challenge this week, we want you to use red, white and blue on your cards, layouts or projects :)


The base of my red, white and blue card is heavyweight cardstock from Canvas Corp. The bottom layer was sponged with Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Ink, the next layer with TH Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The top layer was inked with TH Old Paper and Tea Dye Distress Inks.


For the background flag, the stars are a Dylusions Starry Night stencil, inked with Faded Jeans  The stripes are a Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 It's More Flower Art Stamp, inked in Fired Brick. The Statue of Liberty and USA are from the Tim Holtz Mini Blueprints 2 stamp set. The backgrounds of both were inked with Old Paper and Tea Dye. The Statue was colored in with a Peeled Paint Distress Marker and a TH waterbrush. USA was colored in with Fried Brick, Picket Fence and Faded Jeans and a waterbrush.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp and Show - Favorite Ink (Fired Brick)
  2. DL.Art Thankful Thursday- May Linky Party
  3. Sunday Funday #9 - May Linky Party
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Little Scrap Pieces to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Red, White and Blue project...I can't wait to see what you create :)
