Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I was so excited when Lawn Fawn released the Fireworks Hot Foil Plate. With Memorial Day coming up and then the 4th of July, I thought I would do a little evening picnic scene.
For the sky, I used Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Ink. Even though I have the dies to cut the fireworks out, I decided to hot foil them directly in the sky. I hot foiled the two red fireworks first, then the silver and then the blue. It's hard to see the blue fireworks in the upper right corner for the angle of the picture. I hot foiled the smallest firework in red on acetate to try to make the sparkler that the little mouse is holding. I had to do quite a bit of trimming and then I glued a little glitter start to cover the white on the little bubble wand he is holding.
I used the Little Picket Fence Border to cut the fence out of Narwal cardstock and then added a little bit of Black Soot ink to give it a little dimension. I used the Stitched Hillside Pop Up to cut the hills from Noble Fir cardstock touched up and speckled with Black Soot Distress Ink.
Don't they just look like they are have just the best time? I am looking forward to summer gatherings. Maybe not the fireworks because it is so hard on the animals. Out derpy dog doesn't mind them at all though.
Here's to a fun summer of family and friends!
