Patriotic Pride Release

Happy 4th of July USA Friends!! 
I'm featuring a fun technique and an image from the new 
Patriotic Pride stamp set

 I started with the background. I masked with a few sheets of copy paper. I found this was the best mask for this technique.  Next I dripped a few drops of Spectrum Noir Ink Refills TB6 and Blender onto felt and light dabbed around stars area of the flag, leaving white space.  

I re-positioned the copy paper mask and dabbed in CR11 and Blender in the stripes area. I did this on High Gloss Cardstock and Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock - two different results.  I dig both - kinda artsy!

I stamped the image from the set onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored it with my Spectrum Noir Markers TB6, DR2 and Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils 028, 071. I colored with the pencils first (highlights) and then darkened with the markers.

Crafter's Companion has had several new releases. For more ideas, be sure to pop over to the Crafter's Companion Information Blog, as well as visit the Crafter's Companion Education  and InspiratonTeam members.  You can see their latest designs by clicking on the names on the left side of my blog.

Thank you for visiting!!

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
