For the "uncle sam" tyke image I stamped and embossed twice in blue ink, colored both with Spectrum Noir markers and cut one of the images. I am still learning the techniques of coloring with alchol markers so this was good practice. I then layered the cut image over the full image using foam squares for a 3D effect.
The Celebrate 4th stamp was stamped and then embossed with red glitter embossing powder. The circle was aged using blue ink and Spectrum Noir and Le Plume markers, then lightly sanding. I also cut out a Star Spangled Banner image from a holiday stack by Tim Holtz. The images were placed and layered on blue card stock left over from THIS PROJECT. The edges were trimmed with borders and a embossed square and star brad. I also added hemp for a mixed prim - vintage -glitzy look. Fun!
I have embellished these further with rhinestone accents and look forward to posting a couple of projects, once finished. Until then...happy crafting!
