Topic: Dry Embossing
This really is the last of the letterpress backgrounds.
When looking for patriotic papers I found a great blue stripe that looks like matress ticking. I set it up beside the red star letterpress and added a strip of red dot and a scalloped piece of denim blue.
I added Stickles to the scallop to give it a 'spangled' look.
A pre-stamped sentiment fount its way onto the striped paper and I used colored pencils to add some detail work.
