Time to celebrate our the 4th of July at our Challenge over at Cut It Up!
How do you celebrate? Cook outs, parades, parties, cards? All great ideas! Come share your thoughts with us!
I was perusing Pinterest and found this great T shirt with a flag motif on a big flower and decided I wanted to replicate it. So, I remember a lovely Conie Fong digi I could easily turn into a print and cut in Cricut Design Space!
I uploaded my flower digi into Cricut Design Space and did a Print and Cut using Arches Watercolor Paper. It's easy to cut if you change your settings! No problem making this into a die cut!
Now, I'll admit, I was going to watercolor this and changed my mind after printing. This would easily work on cardstock! I chose to use tape down stripes and use CTMH inks to color. I did try some embossing and had a bit of a blip with that on the WC Paper. I'll have to investigate that further, but if any of you have ideas on this, I'd love to hear them! I continued with some stamping.
On my background piece, I stamped the sentiment FIRST and then embossed placing my folder carefully around it!
So, how are you inspired by this challenge? Come share your ideas with us at Cut It Up!
