The challenge theme for the month of July is "Red, White and Blue." Use these three colors in any way that they inspire you. It definitely doesn't have to be Americana or patriotic.
I colored the adorable girl from OA Ahoy set by The Greeting Farm on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock with Copic markers and the no-line coloring technique. She is then trimmed and popped on the background with foam tape.
To make the background, I first pressed Barn Door and Faded Jeans distress inks on my craft sheet then picked up the colors with a very wet paint brush then flicked the ink onto watercolor paper. I let the ink sit on the watercolor paper for a minute or so then dabbed them dry with a paper towel. The sentiment from Simply Said set is then stamped before the image was pop dotted. A few pieces of yummy washi tapes are then added for a little interest.
That's all for now.
