Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday - Let Freedom Ring

Happy Friday!! I hope you had a great week!! Sorry I haven't had a chance to post this week...summer is always so busy for me. And if someone can tell me where June went, I would appreciate it :)


Friday means a new Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces!! Our theme this week is in honor of Independence Day in America. So we want to see your projects that Let Freedom Ring :)


The base of the tag is manilla cardstock die cut with the Tim Holtz Tag & Bookplate die. A background stamp from Stampabilities with the lyrics to America the Beautiful was stamped in TH Antique Linen Distress Ink. The rays stamp from TH's Psychedelic Grunge set was stamped with Faded Jeans and Fired Brick Distress Inks. The stars are from the same set, stamped with the same two Distress Inks. The stars and rays were outlined with a Sakura White Gelly Roll pen. The sentiments "Home of the Free," "Because of the Brave" and "God Bless America" are from K Andrew Designs Freedom Isn't Free stamp set stamped with Versafine Onyx ink. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my sweet friend and our challenge hostess Karen of Little Scrap Pieces.


The stars were punched out and then stamped with the stripes stamp from Wendy Vecchi's It's More Flower Art set in Faded Jeans and Fired Brick. The edges of the tag were inked with Walnut Distress Ink.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
  2. DL.Art - Anything Goes Linky Party
  3. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday #112 - Patriotic
  4. Sunday Funday #10- June Anything Goes

This is great, very patriotic! I love how that red ink looks. I think I have it but I'm not much of a stamper and I'm a bit intimidated. I may have to give it a try now. Thanks for the inspiration!
