Leslie G of Leslie's Craft Room and Zella - for whom I can't find a link so perhaps Zella doesn't have a blog. Zella if you do, please provide me with a link so I can give a shout out with your blog address. Thank you both for joining here as followers. It's always so exciting to see new faces in the following list. Watch out for a surprise the day I see that 250th face/name show up!
Again, I'm using some of DeeDee's Digis 4th of July Designs - this one is from the Hat's Off digi collection.
- Precolored Digi was hand cut, did a minimum amount of shading with copics. Separated the Uncle Sam top hat from the drawn digi and reattached with a narrow white ribbon.
- Embossed & stenciled background was a snippet from another project - the front didn't turn out as I wished. Decided I could use a MBox stencil and some blue spray and still use the piece as a background. Die cut an oval, placed a snippet of the stripe digi papers from the Stitchy Stars set behind this cut out oval. Used the Lil Inkers ovals to cut a frame, adhered the frame over the striped paper. Mr. Eagle has some dimensional foam tape adhering him in place and the sentiment from Hat's Off was cut with deckle scissors so it would fit in the space.
- punched 2 stars from silver glitter paper and covered with Smooch paints (the kind that looks like tiny fingernail polish bottles. A NBUS for me. Have had the stuff, seldom think to use it.). Used some sponges that had red & blue residual Distress ink that were in the drawer. (?another snippet?)
One more down for the 4th of July cards I need to get mailed. Hope you like it, and will check out DeeDee-s.
