Happy Fourth

This is my card on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today
using the cutest
BAXTER PUP-4th of July set!

This card probably looks more time consuming then it actually was.
It took longer to dry then anything and even that wasn't long.

I started out by first stamping my image on a stitched die cut square.
Then I positioned a Memory Box Stardust Stencil over it in various places
I did my stenciling, moving the stencil around as needed.

I set it aside to dry.

A bit of  Shimmer Powder Blue Blitz was sprinkled on on my craft mat,
then spritzed with water.
I randomly painted line son with my paint brush.
Once it was dry I embossed the entire piece with a star embossing folder.
I then also spritzed with Nuvo Mica Mist Nebula Blue.

 I colored the Baxter Pup image in with Copics,
then used  SNS Dimensional Glue on the pup's muzzle and top hair, 
and sprinkling with SNS  Sparkling Coffee  and Amber Wheat flocking.
The pup's nose, I added  Crystal DropsEbony Black.
The flag was colored in with Copics and Nuvo Alcohol Markers Indigo Ink markers.
I then added Nuvo Crystal Glaze  to the stars and Nuvo Glitter Marker Ember Glow
to the flag pole, then added sparkle to the entire flag using Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Shimmer'

 The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and embossed with 
Red Apple  embossing powder.
Using  Tear-ific Tape ¼” I added the ribbon, then bow and a brad.

The glitter 'frames' were made using Tear-ific Tape ½”
around the edges and then   Gypsy Red'
