The Challenge at For Fun this week is to create a project using summer colors, bright colors, and even neon colors from the 80's. I had chosen Patriotic AJ earlier from The Stampin Boutique and decided that to make him fit this challenge that there is nothing brighter in July than red, white, and blue. Needless to say, I had to really jazz up the paper for it to look like I wanted it to look and that took me hours to do, so I really hope you can see the background with all the bling and brightness.
This is one week you will definitely want to play along with us at For Fun. The Stampin Boutique will be giving away digi images to one lucky winner.
DP is Imaginisce and all the explosions are done with Ruby Red and Stardust Stickles.
Center was cut with a Spellbinder's dye, covered in craft glue and smothered with Barbara Trombley's Crystal Glitter.
The fireworks coming out of the flowers are wire with Score Tape wrapped around them and dipped in more of Barbara's glitters, Crystal, Red Oak, and Canadian Blue. I tried glue first, stickles second, and then got tired of the mess so decided to try Score Tape. So much easier, no mess, and no drying time.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts with Stickles added - ribbon from stash
AJ is colored with copics, gold stickles for the belt and buttons, silver stickles for the flag pole and stars and Glossy Accents added to the shoes. Ever see a military man without a spit shinned shoe? I sure haven't!
Copics: B39, 37, 29, 24, 49 - R46, 49 - E11, 00, 000, R20 - C7, 3, 2, 0, 00 and 110 Black - .03 Black and Red Multiliner Pens
