Happy 4th of July!

Happy Fourth everyone! I am just stopping by for a quick hello today, as we are headed out for a family celebration.

The patriotic image is from Vintage Picnic and was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink. I colored it in with my Copics and used some Distress Ink to add an aged look. I then used the cracked glass technique on the main image. I used Versamark Dazzle to adhere the clear embossing powder and as I was heating it, all the dazzle came loose! The image looks neat, the sparkles floating in the 'glass'. My favorite plaid background is a combination of the stripe image from Let Freedom Ring and Faux Ribbon. The buttons are from a jar of vintage buttons I purchased at a flea market!

Thanks for stopping by today - enjoy America's birthday! See you soon!
