Friday, Friday, Friday......

It's Friday and a Holiday weekend Whoot Whoot!!! Time for the Friday Mashup as well, I'm up this week and I have a Patriotic Challenge for us... I love the Holidays that celebrate Patriotism, it's something that I think should be celebrated all year ... I'm a Military Spouse what can I say!

This week for the Mashup you can make a project using Red, White & Blue or a project that show Patriotism or "Mash it Up!" and make a project that showcases both.. It can be for any country!

I went with a Digital stamp this week and yes I still have a Love/Hate relationship with these things... They never want to print out without a struggle for me. They are way to big or way to small, but this time I think I figured out the printing part. I purchased both the uncolored and the colored images of this stamp and I love both.. But for some reason the pre-colored one just blew me away..

Plus until I get on the Copic Marker wagon mine will never look at good as this!

It didn't have a background though just a floating image so I decided it needed a sky! I made a mask of the image and then I cut out the shape of a cloud from a piece of scratch paper and with a sponge and some Bashful Blue ink I made a sky... I actually like this sky better then the ones you get with a scallop circle, just free hand a shape and use that, Clouds aren't a perfect shape.

My base is Pacific Point with a later of Real Red and Whisper White that I ran through the big Shot using a Texturz Plate.

I punched out a Modern Label from some Real Red and adhered a Retired Rub On to it and then I added some small Stars punched from Daffodil Delight and 3 Silver Brads! It's adorable if you ask

Now head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the rest of the Design Team have created this week and link up! We'd love to have you join us....

Have a great Holiday Weekend !!!
