Red, White and Blue Challenge


Today I made a small card (thank you card size) for the challenges at CAS-ual Fridays and The Alley Way Stamps which both call for Red, White and Blue creations. It took me 20 mins to make it, upload the picture, edit, post to the blog and enter with only 3 mins to spare on the CAS-ual Fridays blog!! Whew!! What a rush????!!!

I needed to use TAWS digis to qualify so I printed a free matching image and sentiment from their website. I placed the images in MS Word and printed on Neenah cardstock (one of the best for coloring). Recollections makes a stamp set of all splatters that seemed the best to use with the TAWS digis. Using TPC Studio Clearly Better ink in Navy and Scarlet I completed the look. The TAWS inspiration photo called for a little brown so I colored the paintbrush with my Copic marker Y26. This little painter didn't wash off her brush so she has both red and blue paint on the bristles. I achieved that look by picking up ink from the ink pads and using a blender pen from Marvy (Le Plume II) to add the color. There's a broad tip and a fine tip.

This card is whimsical, clean and simple. I hope you like it!

    1. Hi Lyne! Yes, I bought MS office for Mac at Best Buy a few days after I got the macbook for my bday. It's a gift card looking thing with a pin and then you download, MS word, Powerpoint, Excel and Outlook from the internet. I can open, edit, save, share docs with PCs no problem. I love it!!
