Hello my bloggy friends!
Welcome to another Funday Friday Challenge.
Today is a very special day as it is my niece's 6th birthday
and our 6th Funday Friday Challenge!
But seriously, where on earth did June go? I feel like I blinked and it was over.
But ya know what? Next week is one of my favorite times of the year, Independence Day. The summer sun beating down, the smells of BBQ cooking in the air, hearing kids' laughter with splashes hitting the pool and most importantly...our freedom to do it all!
So with that being said...
This week's Challenge:
"Let Freedom Ring"
Create a card, layout or project for the 4th of July or showing us your
Red, White & Blue!
*One lucky winner will be selected via random.org for a Guest Designer spot for August!*
Starts: Friday, June 28th 12:00AM
Ends: Friday, July 5th 6:00PM
CHALLENGE RULES UPDATE
We have now changed the challenge rules to 3 entries per person per challenge except for the Anything Goes challenges which will be unlimited.
Here is what I created this week for the challenge
For this challenge, I decided I wanted to create a tag. I forgot how fun they were to make! I cut out my tag using my Elegant Edges cricut cartridge and cut out the "burst" cut on oblong at 4" out of some blue CS from Recollections that had already been decorated with artist spackle. I cut a second "burst" out on oblong at 4 1/4" out of red CS from Bazzill. Speaking of artist spackle, I took my Flower Frenzy template by The Crafter's Workshop, layered it on top of my blue CS and spread my artist spackle over it. Once the template was covered with the spackle, I lifted it up and then let my CS dry. It gives a raised finish, kinda like embossing only a bit higher.
I then took my Lobster glimmer mist and lightly sprayed it over the top of my stencil to bring in some red splats. I took my white sakura pen and outlined some of the flowers and added in some dots. I took some white DIY Thickers to say "4th" and very carefully glittered each one up using red, white and blue glitter from Glitz. I also used some scor-tape under the "burst" and peeled it up little by little to glitter underneath it so that the burst was also red, white and blue.
To finish off my tag, I cut out some stars from an old cm punch, glittered them as well and popped the white and blue one up on foam tape for some dimension. I decided to also add a few silver sequins and some red and blue twine tied off at the top of the tag. Here is a close up of the "burst".
Well that is my tag my friends.
I plan on using this for a July 4th scrapbook layout.
