This is what I think of when I see this Vintage Picnic basket with the Fourth of July items sticking out! I grew up in a very patriotic family----I love this country and I like to celebrate it's birth. I love reading about Michelle Wooderson's big Fourth of July party she has and seeing all the cool stuff she's using to decorate. I must say---I looked at her site to see how she colored this image---I'm still new to the Copic world and she's a pro---so, I just copied it---I admit it. Now, I didn't copy her card---just the coloring---AND, mine is not so great---but I'm trying!
I love Vintage Cream ink on kraft cardstock. This card was simple to throw together. I stamped the image on Rustic Cream cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink & then colored it with Copic markers. Since I had colored the image ahead of time, it took almost no time to make a card. I layered the image on Scarlet Jewel cardstock. Then I punched the stars out of Scarlet Jewel and Spring Rain. I added a Rustic Wood button tied on with Rustic Jute twine. I finished the card up with some Scarlet Jewel twill. So fun! I've been using Vintage Picnic a lot to color lately, so hopefully I'll get some more cards made with the images.
Thanks for stopping by today!
