My mind went right to Conesus Lake in Western New York, where my sister and brother-in-law live. It’s only six miles from my house, so we spend a lot of time there boating and swimming. On July 3 is a big Independence Day celebration called the “Ring of Fire.” Every house around the lake lights flares along the lake’s edge at 10:00 PM, turning the lake into a glowing orange ring. Of course, there are fireworks, which inspired my card...
I inked a background using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, and Broken China. I used fireworks stencils from Trinity Stamps, Echo Patk, and Simple Stories. I heat embossed in red, white, blue, and gold.
Added lots of Stickles and Nuvo Drops for sparkle and shine, and a sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s “Land that I Love” set. The little house die cuts are from Julie Ebersole’s “Hearth & Home” at Ellen Hutson, and Neat & Tangled’s “Warm Winter Scene.”
Thanks for stopping by! ❤️
