Love to Create - Stars and Stripes

Time for another Love to Create challenge and this week the theme is 'Stars and Stripes', just in time for July 4th: Independance Day in the USA!

Here is my interpretation:


Our sponsors this week are the fabulous Bugaboo and this is the gorgeous Girl and Cat image from the Kidz collection! I think this is absolutely adorable! Click on the image below to visit the Bugaboo site and see the range for yourself:


I coloured the image with ProMarkers and matted it onto kraft. The backing paper is Gabrielle from Bo Bunny, which is also matted onto kraft. I inked the edges of the kraft card with Walnut Stain and the edges of the image and sentiment with Pool Adirondack. The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat. I added some depth with some cheesecloth, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and some pearl star/round gems.


See you over at the Love to Create challenge blog!

Happy Crafting!
