Monday Challenge - Red, White and/or Blue

I came up with an idea for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "Red, White, and/or Blue". Of course, I would include blue since I love blue and I have these great Distress Oxide blue colors. I decided to use the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz "Sea Life" to make a July 4th card. It will have to be mailed to someone next year though since I missed the day of July 4th as I had just gotten back from vacation. 


I figured the lobster, octopus and fish would function as my red, white and blue. Then I found a flag stamp which I colored with various pens. The hat on the octopus is from the Tim Holtz Crazy Things which was colored to look like an Uncle Sam hat. The background is primarily Distress Oxide inks on watercolor paper spritzed with water. I tore the edges and layered it on 2 layers of the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Correspondence scrapbook paper. 

I am very happy with how this turned out. Thank you for stopping by. I hope your summer is going well. Stay cool.
