thinking of you

Today is the last day of Impression Obsession week at Stamper's Dream and this stamp is just way too fun! I thought, ooh, 4th of July, red white and blue, but then, my new favorite papers, My Mind's Eye Andrea Victoria, were just staring at me. I thought, why not color them to work with the papers? On paper, it just didn't work. But on thin muslin, it did!!
I cut the muslin out with my Spellbinders Long Rectangle Nestabilities. It had to be run through twice, but it only needed a couple of threads snipped. The banner was stamped with Palette ink and colored with Copics. Keep in mind, if you try this, they will bleed a bit, so use a light hand and scratch paper underneath. I also went over the stars with the *new* Spica color, Buttermilk. I finished the shabby look off with lace, buttons, twine, and distressing all the paper edges.
See what Tosha Leyendekker and Michelle Rodgers created to cap off a fabulous week!
Remember my BIG blog candy drawing coming tomorrow! *wink, wink*
have a super weekend and thanks for stopping by!
