I was able to pick the theme for this weeks AAA Cards challenge and I think the banner turned out so cute. I wanted stars but not necessarily patriotic although that is what I am thinking as we just celebrated the Fourth of July.
I created my background with Distress Stains on watercolor paper. I used blue, red and white just because those colors go so nicely with stars. Plus my sentiment by Tim Holtz has the word Sparkle in it so again not really patriotic and one about celebrating.
The white dots were created with a Copic white ink in a little bottle. My stars were punched and I ended up creating a little banner with them by sewing them together. The dots on the stars were created by Liquid Pearls.
My card also fits the Addicted to CAS Patriotic challenge although it doesn't have a specific Patriotic theme.
Be sure to join us at AAA Cards.
