Hi crafters. I have an entry for the Simon says Stamp Monday challenge which is Stars and Stripes. I started with background that had lots of acrylic paint on it. I added radiating stripes with the Visible Image stencil Strobes and some heavy gel with yellow paint in it. When that was dry I added stencilled stars with texture paste, paint and glitter mixed together. The buildings are from a Kaisercraft die and gel print paper. I layered these with light colours at the back and added the colours from the background onto them with crayon. I added different shades of yellow paper behind them. The sentiment is from The Stamp Market Hooray Yay Stamp (discontinued) which I stamped in purple onto yellow scrap and cut it apart. I was playing with contrasting colours and using up bits that were lying around. Definitely not CAS, lol.

I am also entering this card in the Simon says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Anything goes.
