Bonfire Night

Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge
This challenge is all about Bonfire Night.
It's an English Holiday and Rhonda researched it and you can find out all about it on her blog.
Miss Daisy created a digital set to depict this holiday.
Here i am using three of them.
The set is called Flash Bang and can be found in the Daisy Doodles Store.
It's a four stamp set for $3. the large bonfire comes with another image next to it, but I cropped it off!
I created the sentiment on the computer and it just happened to fit that punch perfect.
for my background I used Coredinations paper and Distressed Stripes EF from Cuttlebug.
Sanded/distressed some of the brown off to show that red.
Took Black Soot and distressed around all the squares, a very thin line!!
Sponged the sparklers with Yo Yo Yellow so there wasn't too much white.
Happened to have some brown twill tape and pulled a piece of eyelash yarn through the knot with a crochet hook. A very small crochet hook.
This card will also be entered into the HYCCT17 challenge that requests "Pop It Up". 
The bonfire and the top left sparkler as well as the senti are popped up with dimensionals.
This card was quick and easy and I cased a card from Mothermark on SCS HYCCT.
She used squares on her card that were scattered, not in any particular design, 
and I just thought that was so clever.
Thanks for coming by!
HOPE you're loving the HYCCT challenges!!!

Hi Joanne. I just love the distressed background you created. It's perfect for the backing of the images. The inked edges is indeed quite thin and I think by making them a bit more defined would have helped to make them pop that little more. To add some added texture and difference you could have also tried distressing one of the edges of the images such as the bonfire with scissors first before inking or even after inking the edge. I do love how you made the bonfire tab. The sponges edge is great and love how you popped it up. Thanks for joining our technique challenge and I hope to see you again. hugs xxoo
