Freedom!

Hello!
Yesterday was the Fourth of July (obviously!), so today I'm carrying over the theme with a red, white and blue creation!
The background is a very quick and easy monoprint. I liked the blobby look in this instance, so stopped pulling the print at this point! I would usually carry on placing the print on the acrylic block and lifting off until the paint was blended a little more, however, this seemed just right for my theme!
Pulling off a painty print leaves a fabulous texture to your background....
I did my usual stamping over the paint...
And added a little stitching, mainly for my figure to stand on!
My Stampotique lady is holding punched out stars, glued onto twirly wire...
I love using wire in otherwise flat projects, as it gives great dimension!
A word sticker to finish...
Hope you like her!
 Have a fabulous weekend...I'm going to be glued to the sofa, tennis AND a Grand Prix to watch- marvellous!!!
