Lady Liberty Note Card

Hi Everyone,

Hope you had a fantastic 4th of July. It is just too hot around here so I spent the day going to a few of the local craft stores to poke around. I did get a few small items to add to my crafty stash. Nothing too much just a pack of stickers and a small die set of Spellbinders arrows that were on clearance. Those clearance racks are hard to resist.

Then I spent the afternoon making cards. Here is one that I made for the SSS challenges this week and in honor of this great holiday. On with the design and ingredients. 

All stamps are from this small set from the Sweet Stamp Shop called Lady Liberty. I started by stamping Lady Liberty onto a piece of Canson watercolor paper. Then created a mask of the same using a full sheet of post it note.  This allows for the Lady Liberty to be in the forefront. Then I stamped the fireworks with just a bit overlaying the masked lady. Then I stamped the sentiment. These were all stamped in Versafine Onyx black ink to allow for some watercoloring. 

I used distress inks for the water colors. The images were painted with festive berries, cracked pistachio, and broken china using an aqua water brush. I used silver for the white fireworks and the background is a mix of weathered wood and tumbled glass. I replaced the mask and then did a light splatter with the silver watercolor. 

The panel was cut down and glued(Tombo mono) to a blue border panel that was then glued to a red top folding A2 card base.
