Stamp Something Challenge-Show Me Your Colors

While cruse'n through the blogs I follow, I came across this challenge on Stamp Something, AND since tomorrow is the 4th of July this wall hanging came about last night. I know, I should be working on more thank you cards, but ya know how it is when inspiration gets in the way LOL.
I used a chip board for this, spray it white then used inks from Posh Impressions to lay out the background. With the inks being water based I then had to seal it with a spray mat sealer. Once everything was dry I took an old acrylic file to the edges. Using Tom Holtz's Vintage Photo ink I aged the edges, then sprayed sealer again. The image is also from Posh Impressions, after
stamping it with black ink I sponged red and
blue at an angle and aged with the same
Vintage Photo ink. A small red, white and blue
looped ribbon was added to the lower right
corner and three star brads. It all hangs from
red, white and blue glittery fibers.
