Hello there! It's Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog time and this week our sponsor is DRS Designs. Our theme for the week is Stars & Stripes! I'm a very patriotic soul so this week's challenge is a favorite! The image I've used is USA Thanks to Our Brave. This one was near and dear because I spent 9 years on active duty in the U. S. Army. I'm proud of my service to our wonderful country!
Here's what I used to create this ATC:
atyouSpica™ Glitter Pens
Dylusions® Spray in Postbox Red
Americana 6x6 American Crafts™ Paper Pad
Red Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives
Here's what I did to create this ATC:
I printed the image twice in two different sizes as I wanted the bottom portion of the image to be smaller than the USA.
I colored the USA with Copics® first and then cut out each letter.
Next I decided to go over each letter with glitter pens to add a little pizzazz!
I didn't want the sentiment to remain white so I spritzed it with red spray mist and set it aside to dry.
I cut the base of the ATC from red cardstock.
I cut the patterned background paper and adhered it to the ATC base.
Next I added a little sparkle to my patterned paper with glitter pens.
Since the sentiment was dry now, I added a little glitter to "Free" and "Brave."
Next up was all the layering and adhering as shown.
I would love to see your patriotic ATC's so I hope you'll join us this week. Have a wonderful day!
