Red White & BOOM! Blogger Challenge

Here it is already...July! I think I'm a time traveler....the days are just passing by so quickly, months, years...and another Blogger Challenge. This week is Red, White and Blue for me. I used the alcohol ink lights for this background with canned air. The stamp is Stampendous which I embossed in silver and it did not show up at all. I then quickly outlined each burst with red and blue Stadler fine tip markers, and salvaged the piece. Quick and easy this busy holiday weekend. I hope you all have a safe and glorious 4th, and honor our country in some way! God Bless America! hugz....
