(2018 c75) 4th July Bookmarks


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI started with white cardstock and colored with Distress Inks by Ranger  Squeezed Lemonade, Pickled Raspberry &  Blue Lagoon.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA 



Next  as you can see above on the right I sponged  Versamark Ink  through sections of the SA113 Every Which Way Stencil  by  Hero Arts.

I heat embossed with Kaleidoscope Transparent by Stampendous.  Then I sponged over the whole strip with Distress Inks by Ranger  Wilted Violet, Tumbled Glass and Concord Grape multiple times to achieve the night sky look.  I wiped off all the embossed surfaces to reveal the bright & sparkling fireworks. Finally I cut the strip in half & mounted each on black cardstock and stamped the flag and July 4 2018 on the back and heat embossed with gold. Last I used my hot laminator to laminate them.
