I love patriotic cards. I am not especially political or anything, but the good old red/white/blue makes me feel good. So today I want to share something from Sparkle N Sprinkle's Patriotic Icons set. It has a lot of neat sentiments and three images that surely represent the USA.
Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then watercolored using dye inks and an aqua brush. The star behind the eagle was stamped with VersaMark pigment ink, then embossed with Americana EP. I love this embossing powder with its red/white/blue and glittery mixture!
Right now, until July 4, you can order a fabulous Patriotic Bundle from Sparkle N Sprinkle. It includes two sets and all sorts of cool embossing powders and glitters to make beautiful patriotic cards!
Mark your calendars for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop coming up in July - it is sure to cool you off from the winter heat - that is, if you have it! It's a great 72 degrees here today. Perfect!
Oh, I have been having some PC trouble, so have been using my MacBook (which I LOVE) lately. Can anyone tell me how to apply a watermark using Mac? I don't have Photoshop or anything like that - just the stuff that comes with the computer. I am used to using PSE7 and MS Publisher on my PC, but have no clue how to do it on a Mac! Thanks!
Thanks for stopping by! Leave a comment and tell me what you think, and then I can visit you too!
