Red White and Blue

Please scroll down for Die Cut Dreams Blog Hop
Good morning peeps, are you all surviving this heat wave? I am wilting big style and just wish it would drop a few degrees.

This week at Sweet Pea Stampers we have a colour combo for you

Red, White and Blue







I have inked up Koi and coloured her with a mixture of copics and prismas, papers are SU and the red panel is a deeply embossed metalic paper which I found amongst my stash. Sentiment is a See D, ribbon woven through lace and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts .

Challenges:

Crafty Sentiments - Sketch

Crafts and Me - Birthdays

Pixie Dust Studio - Red/White/Blue

Secret Crafter Saturday - Water

Stampin´Sisters in Christ - Use Red and/or Blue
