Hometown Parade

Hey, Katie here today.  Hoping you are having a great Friday!  

Last weekend it was sunny here and I went whale watching with my family.  It was awesome!  It put me even more in the mood for summer than I already was.  Independence Day is just around the corner in the USA so I have a card that screams summer and the 4th of July. 

Isn’t this just the most fun parade ever?!  I love all the critters, it makes the perfect scene.  

I made this with quite a few of the new products and a few older ones too.  I started by stamping out the critters from the Greatest Friend on Earth, Hometown Parade, and Balancing Acts.  I colored them with my Copics and used the coordinating dies to cut them out- Greatest Friend on Earth Die Set, Hometown Parade Die Set and Balancing Acts Die Set.  When you combine these you get so many combination options! 

Next, I used a white panel and distressed it using my Blending Buddy and distress inks, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distress ink.  Then I used my Superstar Stencil and my Layered Fireworks Stencil with the Glitter paste to create the starry sky.  I threw in a few star embellishments for good measure.  When it was all dry, I used foam tape to mount my images.  Then I mounted this layer on top of a layer of red that was cut out using the Scalloped Card Panels Slimline Die. Tada!  So stinking fun!

What do you think?  I hope you love it, I sure do.  Here is a close up of some of my fave critters- can you say Monkey on a tricycle and mouse in a cheese car?  I can!!!

Thanks for visiting today and hope you have a marvelous and sunny Friday!
