Happy 4th of July!

The "Funkie" side of Frilly and Funkie now has their turn at "Let's See Some Texture."  We are looking for different materials to create texture, with "fabric" being an optional twist.  If you are frilly or if your are funkie, there is a place for you!  Stop by Frilly and Funkie for more inspiration from both DT sides and remember there is a nice prize to be won at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!  We can't wait to see how you combine different textures, materials and fabric, so come join us. 
Since I knew this would post on July 4th, I wanted to keep my project with a Patriotic theme.  Not to mention that I could not wait to play with my new "Word Play" die!  Then I saw Mr. Tim's, July 12 Tags of 2012, the "fireworks" went off.  This will also be linked up to Lisa's Blogger's Challenge, "Celebrate the 4th"  and Inspiration Journal, "Red, White and Blue."
For my "fabric letters," which were cut from an old denim blouse, I adhered a two way adhesive sheet to grunge paper, peeled off the protective layer and applied my denim.  The tie was also cut from a denim strip and the stamped with Tim's stars in Stampin Up Craft White and then I heat set with White Embossing Powder.  All denim edges were shaded with Faded Jeans.  I also cut a second group of letters in black chipboard and offset the denim letters just a little.  Pretty much for the July background, I followed Tim's instructions for July.  The tag background was inked with Barn Door and Faded Jeans, all tag edges distressed and shaded with Vintage Photo.  The fireworks is a stamp from Scrolls Work Stamps (now closed) and this was embossed with Ranger's Black Sparkle.   Added a little Stickles to the fireworks center. 
For those that celebrate the 4th of July, have a wonderful and safe time!  We will be off to our friends for a 4th BBQ, which is now a tradition!   Thank you so much for stopping by!  Spell Check is so not working for me, it is just not on!  Oh well, I know there are a few of you out there pretty upset with Blogger!

Hi Terry
Positively cool.
Love that you used the traditional colours but in a faded way as though timeworn by the sun.
Wonderful details. Your stash of embellishments always amazes me.
Wishes
Lynne

Your tag is awesome! I especially love your letters: Brilliant layering in the fabric and backing with black really makes them *POP*!

Yvonne Garner said...

Hi Terry! Waiting for the fireworks to begin and catching up on your blog! I love your tag! You have cptured Americana perfectly. I was so bummed to have forgotten to grab any patriotic stamps before leaving home. Could head to Michaels, but we have a saying in these parts about not heading over the bridge from Memorial Day through Labor Day! Enjoy your BBQ! Best wishes, Yvonne
