New York, New York-Happy 4th!

Good morning Junkies, Pam here today! Happy Thursday to y'all. So happy to be back creating with the talented team at Technique Junkies.  In honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday I decided to feature a fantastic background stamp New York Music with a patriotic flare.

I created a postcard" like card with a red,white and blue theme-funny we don't send postcards much anymore when we are traveling-now we have instagram and Facebook!
The background was created using a technique (my favorite) called stencil monoprint.  I used bits and pieces of a stars and stripes stencil to create the background of the postcard onto watercolor paper.  

The New York stamp was stamp in Archival black over top.  A bit of distress ink was applied to give the overall "distressed" feel.  A fun way to celebrate the fourth!

This stamp has such great detail of the skyline and super fun to use as a background.

I hope everyone has a Happy and safe July 4th! 
Embrace Imperfection,
