This is the second card I made for UmWow's June challenge. I was inspired by the splatters and thought they would resemble fireworks behind the flags.
For this card, the background stars were applied using a Heidi Swapp mask and gesso. I also added gesso to the UmWow chipboard stars then painted them with stickles for a little sparkle. White acrylic paint was splattered onto the card front, then TH visual artistry collection stars were stamped using TH weathered wood distress ink. The flags and stripe ribbon were from a MM July 4 embellishment pack. The card front was then added to red background cardstock that had a diagonal stripe border cut out using the silhouette. All was placed on a white card base.
I have enjoyed learning about gesso and playing a little with it on projects and hope you also enjoyed taking a look at my projects.
