Bloggers Challenge Meets {MTSC80}

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  With this weekend being the 4th of July here in the US, I issued a Patriotic Theme Challenge to the players.  I combined my Bloggers Challenge with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch MTSC80.

I used Adirondack Paints in Red/Blue with the Bingo Blast Technique for the background.  The wonderful image is from the Artistic Outpost Hero plate.  The image is stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor, I used Distress Inks and the Watercolor Distress Technique to add color to the image, then cut with Spellbinder Dies.  I added a wonderful vintage button from Tim's Accoutrement Line along with some Red Seam Binding to finish off my card.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost
Ink - Black Archival, Distress Inks, Adirondack Paints
Card Stock - Watercolor, Red, Blue
Other - Button, Seam Binding, Sponge Dauber, Spellbinders Die, Spritz Bottle, Craft Sheet, Scallop Punch, SAMJ
