Happy Canada Day to all you Canucks out there in blogland.
Most of us are enjoying a day off today....hopefully the rain will give us a break. It has been one wet spring and summer here, but at least it's not white and the grass looks great!!!
This is a new image from Motivet Rubber Stamps, just in time for Canada Day. So as you can see I couldn't resist inking it up for you all.
I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I did the flags again and cut them out and layered them. I couldn't get the effect of the flags I wanted at first so as I colored them with my Tombows I quickly dipped them in clear embossing powder and heat set. Lo and behold it stuck just fine and I was pleased with the shiny result. The shoes are painted with a Gelly roll black glaze pen. The white highlights are done with my Inkssentials white gel pen.I did the same technique on the hat band. I found some sheet music on a Canadian web site and printed it onto red card stock. I traced a maple leaf from a template onto the music and cut it out. The circles are cut with my Nesties.
On a personal note, I would just like to say how blessed my family and I are to live in this beautiful country, a small part of the free world. We have endless opportunities and privileges, thanks to those who came before us and those who serve to protect us now. So on this special day of celebration, as I spend time with my family and friends, I will give Thanks for what we have been blessed with and wish for Peace and Freedom for those who are not as fortunate as we are.
Thanks so much for stopping by.....
Have a Wonderful Day
