LAND OF THE FREE...using a digital stamp

welcome to another challenge.
i am so super late with this project i did not even send it yet.

time has been flying around like a "bee here and bee there" and i have been lacking craft time but however i was able to produce another sign. i love signs and this one i will be using in conjunction with other 4th of july decorations for our get together. i was planning to make a banner but a sign will do for now. i will make the banner later.

our sponsor this week is
eureka stamps.
they will be giving 5 free digi stamps of your choice to the winner. 
thanks so much eureka stamps. they were also very nice to provide the dt with another free digi stamp of our choice. i chose the below background stamp and i love it.

now, onto my sign...this will become the center of my banner. it is a big sign/pennant section measuring 8 inches tall because i want to show it off.

Land of the Free
look how gorgeous!
i love that blue color. i used my spectrum noirs markers to color in this huge image.
i went and sat on the deck, with lulu by my side and spend a bit amount of time coloring and relaxing. i think i use the entire ink in the marker, hehe.

did you noticed the design on the letters?
i did that with a hole puncher, the one you have to use a hammer to punch, lmbo....i think it was the first hole puncher i bought before the crop a dile and i still use it a lot. it is a very handy tool indeed. i think it was the perfect touch. i backed the sign with the same yellow paper i made the stars to give the illusion of lights one of those hollywood like signs you see.

the Land of the Free phrase comes from the cricut cartridge called "stand and salute". i used the craft room because my gypsy was giving me some problems and i have to say i really liked it. i am still in doubts about syncing my gypsy to the craft room...i need some advice on it.

i also punched some stars out and staggered them around the background.

i went outside in the morning and took the picture using the natural light of a beautiful morning.

and this is it for now, :P

thanks so much for stopping by!
