Graduation Card-Sketch 3

I am submitting this as my third entry to the Hero Arts Spring Sketch Challenge under sketch 3 category.

I don't have anybody close to me who is graduating this year but I think, after finishing the card, this is something that can be given to someone graduating.

I dry embossed a blue card stock. Cut a strip off close to the left side of the card. I heat embossed the Tiny Flag stamps in gold on a tan card stock. The card base is white. I adhered the embossed tan card stock to the card base, making sure I plan out how the design will show through the gap. I adhered the blue dry embossed card stock using a lot of dimensional tape. I stamped the circle on a white card stock using Navy ink. It looked plain with the blue circle on white, so I decided to color the circle with Copics. That was a scary move since I heard that Hero Arts ink doesn't work with Copics. I didn't notice the Navy mixing with the Copics while I was coloring . I heat embossed the star in velum using Judikins Iridescent glitter embossing powder. (I think after embossing the image, this powder is comparable to Ranger Holographic embossing powder.) I heat embossed the sentiment on a darker blue strip using gold embossing powder. I fish tail cut the end using my square puncher. I attached two pieces of white washi tape to the back side of the circle, with the sticky side facing front. I powdered it, slant cut the ends, and curled it to mimic a ribbon.

Thanks for viewing my blog.
