happy wednesday :) this week over at CCC  our awesome jeri has chosen the challenge to be red white and blue with a flag. be sure to go see what the rest of the dt has created for us and be sure to play along :) we love to see your projects.
for this challenge i made a flag using corragated cardboard.
i roughly painted it up using white acrylic paint, then adding tim holtz distress inks in fired brick and to lighten the white a bit for that rustic look i love  i used vintage photo. i added fired brick distress stickles to the red. 
for the base under the stars i used a piece of cardboard inked with prussian blue colorbox fluid chalk. i used the same ink on the stars and chestnut roan then added stormy sky and rock candy distress stickles. the stars were cut using GEORGE cartridge. 
for the dog tag i used BASE CAMP . i colored that with tim holtz distress stain in weathered wood and used blackbird colorbox fluid chalk. then added distress stickles in pumice stone .i added a chain, then glued that to the flag. 
the children image is cut from A CHILDS YEAR cartridge.
 i added hemp for hanging.  it measures about 5 length X4 width.
hope ya like this one :) thank you for stopping by and i always appreciate your comments. have a great rest of day :) xxxshelly
