Celebrate

Hi Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful July 4th. I celebrated with friends, food and fireworks! I want to share a tag I made remembering the 4th. We are so blessed here in America so we should celebrate our freedoms and remember those who have and are fighting to keep them.




I used this beautiful eagle from Sparkle N Sprinkle, stamped and colored him and then swiped MicroGlaze over the top of him. I then water colored over the top using Distress ink - Faded Jeans. The MicroGlaze acts as a resist and gave the look of weathered wood. The background is a piece of script patterned paper.




The word charm was a dark slate color, so I used my Sharpies to make it a gold color and to enhance the word by using a red Sharpie.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and God bless!
