What a fun site for today's Inspiration Challenge! Since it's almost the 4th of July, I went with this fun Firecracker Shorts
For my July 4th tribute card, I colored the cannon w/ Copics, die cut it & attached it to a red rectangle. The red rect. was embossed w/ a star border down the left & a stripe folder on the right. On the royal blue background, I inked just the fireworks part of the cannon image & stamped it tone on tone. The sentiment was inked w/ 2 colors of ink & die cut in a banner shape. A little stickles was added to the fireworks for a little sparkle. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for looking! It's also on my blog w/ a list of the Copics I used. The Write Stuff
