Celebrate Freedom!

It’s been a long time. Phew! I’ve had a busy month (June). I had a wonderful visit from my adorable twin nieces who live in Colorado. I’ve just had busy weekends too (Father’s Day, Birthday’s, etc.) and haven’t had the time to post here or on Splitcoaststampers but I’m getting back on track now. I’m popping in quickly tonight to share a card I made recently for Independence Day. It was for SCS Teapot Challenge and I combined it with last Friday’s Mix-Ability challenge.


I started with a piece of watercolor paper and added various shades of blue Brushos spritzed with water. Once dried, I added spackle through a stencil to create the fireworks. Once that was dry I went in and added a few silver Nuvo glitter drops. I covered the bottom portion of the card with a panel that I cut from the NY skyline die-namic from MFT. This card wasn’t planned, it just sort of fell into place and I LOVE it!
