Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog #172


Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog    WW#172-Stars & Stripes

It's Stars & Stripes at Wicked Wednesday this week. We had a great July 4th and we are very grateful for the freedoms that we have living here in the United States. My Father, oldest Son, and my Husband are all Veterans, one Air Force, one Army, and one Navy. 
I tried for a little Sparkle and Shine, because we all love fireworks. 
I used Stampin' Up Brushed Gold card stock for the base. A piece of scrap red copy paper because it was the red I wanted and it was handy. That was stamped with Stampin' Up Whisper White ink, embossed with Stampin' Up white embossing powder. The top left corner I stamped with Stampin' Up Illuminate ink and embossed with Stampin' Up Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I did this because I didn't want the star to hang off but I wanted a bit of sparkle behind it. The stars are from Be the Star stamp set, I forgot to say the stripes are from the Work of Art stamp set. The stars are stamped on Midnight Muse Stampin' Up card stock, stamped and embossed with Versamark ink and Iridescent Ice embossing powder. When I heated the embossing powder on this dark card stock it looked multicolored to me. I liked it so here I go over to Wicked Wednesday to enter.

Happy Creating--
