Almost Heaven -- Land that I love
When I think of this great county, I think of the beauty of it. I love the wide open spaces, the mountains, the rivers, and any chance I have to be outside.
Often, when I experience a creative block, I just take myself outside on my one lane country road and walk. While I walk and look at the trees, the meadows, and they sky, the creativity comes alive in me again.
So, in tribute to this great and beautiful country, I am sharing with you my card to celebrate USA.
I've had this image in my head for a week or so, but I have to admit that when I attempted to make it come to life, I needed a couple tries to get the colors and the placement to satisfy me.
This card uses the Bokeh Dots Stars image in Blueberry Bushel for the stars part of the flag image.
The stripe is created in Lovely Lipstick from an image in the Stitched all
Around stamp set. The mountains, trees, grass, and water are all from the Waterfront stamp. The mountains are Smokey Slate, the grass is Soft Seafoam, the trees are Tranquil Tide, the water is Pool Party. The sun is Mango Melody.
I stamped the Waterfront scene first. All images from the Waterfront set were stamped off first. Then, the flag was stamped full strength over top of scene.
I did add some Smokey Slate birds in the sky from the High Tide set. And since this is to celebrate the land that I love, I put two foil hearts in the upper left corner.
I can use this card to celebrate any of the many early July birthdays in my family. How would you use it?
