Hello! It’s the second Wednesday of the month and time for a new challenge at Words2Craftby! This month’s quote:
“Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.” ─ George Washington
I love playing with the Tim Holtz Hipster stamps, and this is what I came up with:
The oval background behind the old goat was made blending DOX Faded Jeans (plus a very small amount of Vintage Photo) onto white cardstock. I have a Disney punch that has “stars” so I cut some out and spritzed them with water and placed on my (dry) DOX background. There were also some little circles on the punch and I added a few here and then and spritzed my background. I left them on the paper until the water was absorbed and they started lifting up on their own. I like how this turned out.
My old goat was colored in distress inks – Hickory Smoke, Pumice Stone and Vintage Photo, and Fossilized Amber for the straw. I believe I used Candied Apple for the tie and hat brim, and Chipped Sapphire for the hat. The hat is from the Crazy Things set, but I extended the height. I have an old stencil with stars and used Wendy Vecchi crackle embossing paste to add those.
My paper are all scraps and the clear star is from my stash. I used TH jute for my bow, and the 4th of July sentiment is from the Crazy Talk set.
I think that covers everything. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
