A Patriotic layout 38

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, June 29, 2014 @ 9:01 PM | ,

Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is: W is for White! There are so many shades of white, from cream to navajo and with applications from nautical to patriotic to winter. How will you use white this week? Will it be with gesso? ink? pen? or perhaps you will transform simple white cardstock...
I was inspired to create a patriotic themed layout with an all white background.
I love the texture and dimension of the embossed star studded background! 
I wanted the patriotic images from Mini Blueprints 2 to standout as well, so I stamped and heat embossed the images using super fine embossing powder then applied white chalk to create a chalkboard appearance. 
Many thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
