Summer/Patriotic Blog Hop

Happy Saturday and welcome to this months blog hop! So happy you’ve been able to join us on the Team Stamp It. I wanted to make a patriotic card since it’s one our favorite holidays and such a fun way to celebrate Summer which is my favorite season! 

Since there weren’t any specific sets that I could use I had to use a bit of creativity to make my flag card. I used Shimmer White card stock. It’s great for creative styles and watercoloring. I used the ink refills in Pacific Point and Real Red plus our Aqua painters and a straw. I tried several different techniques and the one that worked best was the wet the paper with a little bit of water with the aqua painter and a a drop of ink refill. For the blue square I added water to the whole square and blew through a straw to direct the colors to create my flag image. 

It took a few tries to get the look I wanted but its just paper so feel free to play a little!

I took the sentiment from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set and the label is from Painted Christmas - there are really so many options to choose from!

I'll be sending this card off to my brother in law whose birthday is July 4th!

Keep hopping along to see all the great inspiration from Team Stamp It for all your summer cards and for a chance to win a prize! Just leave a comment #stampitcontest- and please make sure to LEAVE your name!
