We remember moments

and that's what 4th of July is about - isn't it? So for this weeks TIOT - we should make a card/project using the colours Red, White and Blue.

I decided to go all the way - and colour my image "Just because" from VC collection in only these colours. I also made the sky go in red, blue and white :-) I coloured my image with my SU markers and aquarelle brush - to get the feel of an aquarelle painting. Added some 3d gloss her dress, hair and on the blue fungus and stickles on the fly agaric and her wings. Highlights with my white gel pen. Sentiment is from the first Susanaments collection.

As you can see - I have only one sheet of DP and that is from the set that I received from my sweet friend Tara. The different cardstock layers - in blue, red and white - are from my stash.

I also added the roses to match this theme. It was hard, but so much fun to stick to these 3 colours - so thank you Suzanne for challenging us again.

Hope you would like to play along - and if so - please upload your card/project using the keyword "TIOT25" on SCS, PCP or add a link to your comment below.

Also - make sure that you visit the rest of the DTs, but also Jana - how is our new Spotlight stamper. Do you want to become one - well read more about it here.

So to all of you out there - hope you will have a wonderful 4th of July celebration. I myself will also celebrate - but we have other moments to remember - 4th of July is the day that hubby and I became a couple some years ago;-)
