When I first saw this image from Squigglefly, my first reaction was that of the old biker guys that do rides for freedom here in the USA. This hardy fellow was no exception. I seriously considered coloring all or parts of this image, but the simplicity of it just kept me from doing so. I used copic color E44 and E40 as base colors for this image.
The card stock is cut from navy blue, red and white paper as are the stars. They are from a retired sizzix die. I cut the stars from heavy weight coaster board and distressed and sponged the edges. I also added pop dots underneath the stars and main image for more dimension.
All of the subsequent layers are also distressed and sponged with a chocolate ink. I used my scissors to do the distressing of the papers. I hope you will go see all the wonderful images Squigglefly has for sale!
Onto a different subject matter, I was a participant at the "Captured" fairy bottle swap on a lil scrap of heaven,
In addition to the beautiful fairy bottle that Gloria sent me, she also sent me some great fun things, she sent vintage buttons, a note pad/stationary set and a very sweet card. Thanks for the swap and goodies Gloria, they are very much appreciated.
