You are all going to wonder what has gotten into me with TWO posts in one day! :) Well, it's a nice quiet, relaxing holiday with nothing much going on here until the local BIG BANG BOOM fireworks tonight!
Our weather is unseasonably cool and cloudy today so I've just stayed indoors stamping and blogging away! I'll admit that your SWEET comments on my last card have motivated me. Thank U so much!
One of the comments was from Arlana from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and she invited me over to check out her sketch challenge blog. WoW! I was totally inspired by her and her Design Team's incredible patriotic creations! They are all just FANTASTIC!
This layout was perfect for my little patriotic Biker Bee by Stampendous. I stamped the image with Versafine onyx black and colored it with a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. The distressing was done with Versafine vintage sepia. I did change up the layout a little by placing the ribbon above the sentiment instead of below. I stitched on the sentiment before I realized it was too low to place the ribbon underneath. Oh well! In case you're wondering, the little sentiment is from the Stampin Up set ~ "A Little Birdie Told Me". Ever since I created my notebook with all my stamp sets, it's so much easier to find a stamp when I need it. I don't have any 4th of July sentiments, but knew there must be something in my arsenal that would work! :)
I'm not going into great detail so if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I think most bloggers quickly view the photos and don't read all the riff raff anyway. Am I right? ;)
