Take a Word #36 Stars and Stripes

Here's my offering for our theme this week.  I used a darling Paper Whimsy image and a few little bits, smooshed some red and blue ink onto the burlap and finished it off with a background of music and specialty paper for the stripes.  This piece also qualifies for Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog (Cynthia) this week!   Mighty glad you stopped by and I hope you like this piece!

Oh Lynn, you don`t need to apologize that you haven`t been here for a while. For me it is exactly the same. Unfortunately there is no free time.
But since the last time I was here, you were very busy and your art is magically beautiful. I like your style (as always)
Have a nice week

What a fantastic word 'smooshed' is and, of course, what a wonderful tribute to the stars and stripes this lovely piece is.
