I wanted to make something special for the Fourth of July Independence Holiday… something with stars, fireworks and all that jazz… but sadly never got around to it. I did, however, make a couple more acrylic block stamping cards… and this one just happens to be in Red, White, and Blue!!
As you look at the card… is the bird on the outside looking in, or inside looking out? Kind of like one of those tricky photos in highlights for children if you think about it!
Acrylic Blocks were inked with Bashful Blue Classic Ink, and then stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock… different sized blocks created a random pattern on the cardstock… kind of fun!
Then, the large floral image from the Friends Never Fade stamp set was inked with the brush end of Stampin’ Write Markers in Old Olive, and Cherry Cobbler. I love that Stampin’ Up! has provided us stampin’ write markers in all the colors, including in-colors.. it makes stamping so much fun! Because I stamped the lighter colors with acrylic blocks first, the darker colors of Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive completely covered the Bashful blue ink of the window.
