Paper Creations Ink Challenge #4, Red, White, and Blue

Happy Fourth of July to the United States!

We have Challenge #4 starting today at Paper Creations Ink (PCI). The challenge is a color combo of Red, White, and Blue. This was perfect timing. The red, white, and blue challenge runs until Friday, July 15.
The sponsor for this challenge is JLJ Designs. You need to hop on over to her ArtFire store and check out her digital papers and her little pieces of art. The prize for the color combo challenge is a $10 gift certificate from JLJ Design’s store.

On to my project…
JLJ Designs gave PCI’s design team a paper pack to create with. They are beautiful digital papers, and perfect for this color combo.

The image I used is from Sweet Pea Stamps. It’s from Karen Middleton’s Sheet 14, Plate 161 and entitled, what else, Red, White, and Blue. This little star throwing girl is from Ms. Middleton’s Rag Doll Series. I have several of these images, so stay tuned for more posts using these.

Other details:
Copics: b000, 02, 21, 24, 26; e000, 11, 25, 31, 50, 99; yr30; r20, 22, 29; w1, 5.
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Rhubarb.
CS: SU Not Quite Navy, Cryogen 80# Iridescent.
Ribbon: red grosgrain from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Other: Glossy accents and crystals

Challenges that I am entering:
Craft Us Crazy – red, white, and blue or a summer theme
Delightful Sketches – red, white, and blue
Just for Fun – anything goes
Pixie Dust Studio – red, white, and blue with the option of stars
Send a Smile 4 Kids – red, white, and blue

Thanks for stopping by. Y’all have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
