Patriotic Cards

It's time for our monthly product focus with Artistic Outpost. Each month we focus on a a range of stamps and this month we are focusing on the patriotic stamp sets. Today I am showcasing the fabulous Loverly London set.
I created two cards this week both on the same theme, patriotic.
On both cards I created an aperture in the centre of each card, blending a touch of Fired Brick Distress Ink around the edges of the aperture.
I added stamping to the centre of the aperture and I coloured the flag with Distress Markers.
I also added splatters of Fired Brick Distress Paint to the background for a touch more interest and added stamped sentiments from the same set.
Lots more inspiration awaits on my fellow team members blogs.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x x

I saw this and thought brilliant! I always get so caught up in layers and design and forget how effective and beautiful masking can be. Love this tracy!
