Patriotic Layout With Layers

Both versions are designed with many layers of paper. Below is the second version, it is similar to the first but the bottom border is the reverse side of the same paper. The paper for the layouts is all from Authentique - Glory collection. The red color used to ink the bottom border was Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Barn Door.

Five papers from the Glory Collection were used to create this design:Pride (both sides, United (both sides), Freedom, Liberty and Allegiance. I did also purchase the sticker sheet but am not ready to use those until I add my pictures.

The bunting in the right corner is also made with multiple layers. The ribbon paper was from a local thrift shop that I strained with Tim Holtz Distress Stains Barn Door and Chipped Sapphire. That part was so simple, the ribbon paper took the stain perfect. You can see the two colors better in the top picture.

The heart stamp was created by first creating my own stamp pad. I selected any stamp I wanted to use and stamped it with Archival Ink Pads by Ranger onto the felt pads. Then inked the pad with Tim Holtz Distress Reinkers since I had a patriotic stamp, I chose Barn Door and Chipped Sapphire Ink Reinkers to fill the pad. Now I was ready to stamp on my paper and could reuse the pad many times.

Thanks for stopping by - Judy.
