This month I got to work in Jackie's book and her chosen July holiday was Independence Day. I found some really cool scrapbook papers and stickers from BoBunny. With some creative cutting I used those for my backgrounds, banners and pocket. The scallop banners are raised off the surface a little and I accentuated that with a little charcoal pencil. I printed the two vintage postcard images on transparency then burned the edges for a more organic look and texture. The tags are stamped with Frost Versamark ink, a subtle watermark ink with a little shimmer. The blue ribbon with the tiny bows is a vintage French twill - pricey, but the perfect touch!
