me again...I'm away from home for a few days but I wanted to check in and share some amazing projects I've seen this week. I am always amazed by the ideas that come to peoples mind. Stuff I would never think of. Hope you are inspired too!
Starting with this card by Candy Colwell. Seriously, who would think to add white hair to the Time traveler guy to make Uncle Sam? And that USA stamp...never seen it used better. Bravo Candy! You can go to the Ranger blog to see how Candy did it. She makes it look so very easy.
Karen Knight, honoring the fallen Arizona fighters with a red, white and blue theme. Love how she used all the Chit Chat words running down the tag. I have never included that many words on one project but Karen's tag has inspired me to rethink that!
Richele made this great card using the same Flag stamp as Candy, Richele also used the rest of the stamps that come in the set in the background. What a great technique, to fill in what otherwise could have been blank white space with light grey images behind the flag. The red and white paper string really ties it all together (no pun intended).
Barbarayaya...always exciting to see what she is up to. Take this darling little suitcase. Love the blue fabric under the USA and the use of a texture fade to make the red stripes. Clever girl. The back is a good as the front, but you will have to pop over to her blog to see it! And when you are there take a gander at her "12 tags" entry for June. I loved her take on Tims's June tag...and what a fun use of the sizzix alterations pediments die.
Tim's July tag, another touching remembrance to the fallen Arizona fire fighters. Love the brayer technique he used this month. I have the stain and a brayer so you know I'm going to try that when I get home!
cheers for a great week!
now carry on
