Celebrate July 4th with Stars

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE. Well all of the planet must have lined up for me today, Thank you Judy for hosting today's LSC. I looked when I got up to fire up the stove for today's smoked meat lunch with my kids and grand kids and no challenge yet :( Went on and stamped bc I have some new goodies that were screaming pick me! When I came down to upload Viola the challenge and I am within the limits too. YEH, love it when that happens.I combined today's LIMITED SUPPLY CHALLENGE, Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE - She Scores, and this months My Favorite Things Ambassador #1 Challenge - STARS. This little Uncle Sam is from H&M Stamp Company and he is just so adorable.He is stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black then colored with markers, prismacolor pencils and blended w/Gamsol. I added some shading with my new Copic Cool Gray marker. I scored 1/4 inch apart around the main image edges then matted this on real read stamped with Classic Background star stamp in versa mark. This is matted on Brilliant Blue CS scored in a slanted grid pattern using my paper cutter and scoring blade. The card base is white with classic background stars inked with markers and huffed. I punched the large star punch in real red and small in white. Hope everyone enjoys the day.
