Creative Embellishments July Challenge


I completed the Creative Embellishments July Challenge. To participate one had to use some aspect of this image to be inspired, as well as, include stars on their layout. I used the aqua blue background, red, white blue, and stars & stripes for this layout.
First, I embossed the background paper with a star embossing folder and then swiped a white ink pad gently across the paper. To give the bunting flags at the top of the page a little more dimension, I used a craft knife to carefully slice the edges and curl each flag up. Having the rosette hang off the page made a nice point of interest,  I finished off by using a white gel pen to add faux stitching details around the edge
