I Love a Parade...


And so do my Pun Fun Friends :) Happy July 4th!
As you can see, I do love my markers - see yesterdays post for more info on SU Markers. My images were inked in Black Stazon onto Whisper White and each of my 'Fun' friends were colored in solely with my SU Markers. Tip: I masked off the words on the bottom of each image with a sticky note. Bordering Blue for my hippo, Yo Yo Yellow and Apricot Appeal for my bird, Blush Blossom and a Pretty in Pink outline for my lamb, Pumpkin Pie for my cat, and Going Gray for my skunk. I matted my Whisper White layer over 4 Real Red punch Photo Corners onto my Night of Navy card base. The fine tips of the Real Read and Brilliant Blue helped me freehand my flags. The broad tips of Real Red and Brilliant Blue helped me transform my Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon into my customized color to kreate my bows. Pretty cool right! HINT: After coloring in your ribbon you will need to wait a bit until it completely dries to avoid any mishaps on your card. My Snow Swirled snowflake, Versamark ink and some Iridescent Ice Embossing powder help kreate my shimmery display of fireworks. Used my Scallop Edge Punch to finish off the bottom of the card and added some non SU mini rhinestones to the scalloped edge. AND the Scallop Edge Punch is the Deal of the Week! Every week during the month of July, Stampin' Up! will offer one discounted product as a "Deal of the Week." No limits and no minimum purchase required.
