Be sure to stop back at the blog this weekend for the Challenge Winner Announcement for Friday Challenge 76 - "Masculine Cards or Projects".
I created a 6x6 4th of July project to sit on the mantel for years to come.
Using Paper from several of the Quick Quotes sets I put this project together, and hope you enjoy it.
Using Serenade QQP-SR103 I cut a 6x6 panel to cover my canvas.
Using Serenade QQP-SR102, Anchors Aweigh QQP-AW100, Adventure Awaits QQP-AD101, and a Pine Needle Die I ran each panel through my Big Shot and turned the cut upside down to simulate fireworks.
I used my Canon Selphy to print a photo from our fireworks my husband set off this year. This machine is the easiest printer I have ever use. I just open the Canon Print app on my phone, choose the image I want to print and hit print. It goes to the printer and does its thing.
I used Buttercup and Sunset Powderpuff inks to blend a sunset at the bottom of the 6x6 panel. I then used a small piece of the opposite side and stamped out Happy 4th of July using Royal Blue and Red Lipstick Powderpuff inks. I blended the Buttercup and Sunset along with Warm Grey over the top so that it would blend in with the background. This I cut with an oval die, and used foam dots to pop it up.
I used double sided tape to adhere the fireworks, and the photo paper is actually a sticker.
I then found this flag banner that is leftover from a project my daughter did in middle school (11 years ago) and added it along the top.
I really hope you enjoyed this project. I had a great time making it and again plan on setting it out each year.
