Red, White and Blue

      I do have a card for you today.  Guess what! It's Red, White and Blue and was colored it with my Prismacolor colored pencils and Gamsol.  If you read my last post you'll know that i finally found Gamsol to color with. This is the first image that i've attempted using a new coloring technique. It is pretty easy. There is still room for improvement, but i think that i can handle the challenge.

     The digital stamp that i chose today is from Meljens Designs. It is called "Patriotic Bear."  Isn't he cute?  You can purchase all of Meljens digital stamps at  Whimsy Stamps .  For the paper today i used my large scraps. The star and the candle embossing folders comes from Cuttlebug. I bought the ribbon from Walmart after the season last year. I thought that it would be kinda fun to put a real fire crackers on it as a embellishment. I just goes with the theme and all.
