Well HELLO and welcome to another TIOT (Try it out Tuesday)!!!

This week, the very talented Suzanne, challenged the designers to create a card using ONLY the colors Red, White and Blue!!! WOW this was fun.

This cute image is "Follow Your Heart" from the Victoria Case for SCACD collection....isn't she just ADORABLE???? When we were given this challenge, I knew right away I wanted to use this stamp.

The sentiments are the 4th OF JULY printable stamps collection from THE CUTTING CAFE. I printed the background stamp on cranberry card stock, stamped the balloons and trimmed out the full balloon then added a 3-D foam square to add dimension. I also tied some jute around it.

I inked the image using MEMENTO INK and colored in with COPICS. After I colored in the stamp, I sewed it to my card cover with a piece of blue felt as my mat. I used the Ranger White Inkssentials pen to highlight parts of the hair, shirt and jeans.

Make sure to visit the SCACD BLOG to see some amazing TIOT projects from the other designers......THEY ROCK!!!

Big hugs to all, T
