being american, i went with red, white and blue, but i wanted to use up some gorgeous... and ANCIENT** ...flower embellies, as well as some blue lace washi tape that's so old it dates to before i got wise and started writing the manufacturer's name*** inside the disc! thus, i decided to see what i could do with the colors without bringing in any overtly patriotic themes. and i have to say i'm pretty happy with the results. plus... i stamped AGAIN!!! that's twice in one week you guys!!! for this i used my all time favorite stamp set, sheena douglass' "taste of india" which stephanie gave me for my birthday a couple of years ago (2014 maybe??) and which i probably use more often than any other non-alphabet stamp i own. in this case, i've stamped the corners of some well-hoarded, elderly notebook patterned paper, using first faded jeans distress ink, and then (when that wasn't quiiiiite as prominent as i would've liked) i offset the same stamp, and stamped again in cobalt archival... resulting in a sort of shadow effect that i want to remember to try again, but ON PURPOSE next time, lol! :)
i used the sketch and the colors from the current fusion card challenge:
*happy canada day, eh?! ♥
**the velvet flower brad is from a store that i KNOW closed like 5 years ago, and i don't think i bought that packet in their closing sale, either! ;)
***dear washi tape manufacturers, please to put your name on the little mounting roll thingie, so that we know who made it AFTER we've tossed away the packaging. thank you scotch/3m brand for already doing this!!!
