Stars & Stripes + One More :)

Morning chickens and hope you are all well xxx

It’s the middle of the week and time to head over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge where there is a whopping ….

.. up for grabs for one lucky girlie :)

We have a very patriotic theme this week and it’s

Stars & Stripes

The DT have made an array of loveliness and there’s lots of different ideas there so if you get a sec, nip and have a mooch.

This is what I did.

I coloured Lace Jeans Tilda with these Copics -

E00, E21, R11, R20 (skin), E40, E41, E43, E50 (hair), B000, B00, B12, C1, C3, RV000, RV00, RV85 (clothes)

And the paper is a Copics thing as well. I just  used some finger lift tape and laid it in lines across some card leaving a small gap in between, coloured in the gaps with the pens, removed the backing tape and dipped it all in some clear glitter.

You can see it here a little better.

I also  used my new Martha Stewart PATP punch,  and the funky star shape from the EK Success Star and Dove Christmas Punch Set (it’s not just for Christmas!!) and finished them off with a tiny bit of bling :)

I coloured this little Miss Tilda with these Copics -

E00, E21, R11, R20 (skin), E33, E40, E50 (hair), C00, C1, C3, E35, E40, E50,  RV000, RV00, RV85, YG0000, YG03 (clothes)

The paper at the back was ribbled (oooerrrr!!) and then I sprayed it with loads of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist

I also gave the Magnolia Doily Flowers and quick blast as well (I’d also inked the edges). The papers are from the Echo Park SPRINGTIME 12" Collection Kit and I also used my old faithful  Tilda Lace Die as well :)

Have a great day and hugs to all xxx
