Happy Independence Day!

I woke up this morning feeling that I needed to make something to honor today. I have been eyeing my new stamps and thought that the My Favorite Things stamp set called Count the Stars would be perfect. I knew that I wanted to watercolor using this stamp set so this was the perfect occasion to end these thoughts that wouldn’t let me sleep in.

Count the Stars 2

I used some distress inks to watercolor and added some water droplets to add the cool effects to this flag card. Colors will be listed below.

Count the Stars 1

I heat embossed the white stars that you see here and added some shimmer using some Wink of Stella clear glitter.
