Celebrate the 4th - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Sketch Challenge. This weeks challenge is another favorite of mine, as it's a patriotic challenge, as we Celebrate the 4th of July.

Artistic Outpost Hero Stamps, Authentique Glory Pattern Paper
Inspired by this weeks Graphicat Sketch, I used images from the Artistic Outpost Hero plate along with pattern paper from the Authentique Glory line.  The sweet little boy is stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock then colored with STAEDTLER Ergosoft Pencils/blending with Gamsol.  The 3 little stars were left over from this project

Stamps - Artistic Outpost Hero
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Salty Ocean Distress Ink, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Other - Authentique Glory Pattern Paper, SAMJ, Blending Stumps, Gamsol. STAEDTLER Ergosoft Pencils, Ink Blemding Tool, Dimenstionals
