Colonial Michilimackinac

My first post is up as DT at The Robin's Nest. I loved working with their products.

I used the “Blue Stars on Red” paper as the background.

The holes in the black cardstock were punched out using an EK Success punch and then the holes were filled in using the Hillside Mini Dew Drops and since I hate to throw anything away the left over black circles were added to the white cardstock.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the hat and the cannon. I made the cannon balls from a small hole punch.

The red and white ribbon along the side just seemed to tie it all together. The blue paper is Blue Awning Glitter but I used the backside of it.

The flowers were made using teal and blue tissue paper and some pattern paper, used Pistachio Archival Seeds for the center of the flowers. I layered the flowers first and then scrunched them up, once I had them the way I wanted I glued them all down and scrunched one more time.

I used a “Layered Flourish-Chloe” swirl and wanted it to look like smoke swirling so I embossed it with white pigment ink then added white embossing powder.
