Ana here with my red, white and blue design challenge. When I think of the 4th I think of family. I decided to create a Tim holtz mini house and decorate for the 4th of July. I cut out some cricut kids to play in the yard. Their flags are stickled to make them pop out. The house was cut out of cardstock and I then made 1/4 inch strips of white cardstock and inked them with some hickory smoke to make it look like wood. I cut out all the shingles, wood and doors out of white card stock and inked them with distress ink. the stars are cut out of his dimensional stars thinlet. I inked them chipped sapphire to make them pop. I then took alcohol ink and turned some maya roads flowers blue. The number 4 was painted with Dina Wakley paint. I love the thickness of her paint.The box was painted with white and red strips. The inside I painted night and then using a star stencil and Wendy Vecchi silver embossing paste to make it pop. The firecracker top is made with Tim Holtz fringed that I ink sprayed with spiced marmalade. The hat at the bottom was another cricut cut out. I stickled white card stock and painted the blue and red with Dina Wakley paint.
I loved making the firecrackers out of Tim Holtz holiday paper. I rolled them up, used some black paper to look like the gun powder and then painted black some thick twine. Who does not love firecrackers on the 4th. Do you remember the sparklers we all ran around with.
The statue of liberty was cut out of the cricut and I inked it with peeled pain and frayed burlap. I cut out the firecrackers and stickled it for sparkly effect. Stop by the store and see all the amazing creations. I am humbled to be part of the design team with such amazing artists. Let the scrap lifting begin!!!!
