My Creative Time Challenge

Hello crafty friends, it's me again for a second post. I want to enter this card into My Creative Time challenge that Miss Emma has going on. So I needed this card to be in a post all it's own so I could do just that. 

Here is the sketch and inspiration photo colors that are to be used. 





I started off with a matching piece of kraft card stock to layer on top of my kraft card stock base. I took barn door red and faded denim distress inks and put them on my mat and spritzed with water. I then took a paint brush and picked up the color and splatted them down on my layer to look kind like the circles in the sketch. The white came from Unicorn white from Hero Arts shadow inks. I did the same thing with it as well. Then I added my black border under my white stripe of paper. Die cut the stars and layered them together with MCT star dies. I added some sequins with a little bling in them. Popped up my layer and called it done. 

I'm entering this over at My Creative's Challenge. Thanks for stopping by once again. I always appreciate your sweet comments, they truly make me smile from ear to ear. Crafty hugs, Brenda

Ooh la la, Brenda! I'm calling this "done" with dazzle! Splatters, swooshes, sequins and stars all perfectly placed to create a card that is eye-catching, show-stopping stunning! Using kraft as your background really makes the red, white and blue pop...and the inlaid stars are brilliant! Yep, I'm loving this immensely!! Hugs~c
