I didn't have white fabric, so I made a 2" star template & painted the star in the middle of the blue background. With a paintbrush, painted in white lines around the blue box.
The USA looked a little plain so I used the back of the paintbrush & white paint to make the dots.

I even tried my hand at making my own Washi Tape using Red Line tape, tissue paper & then spraying it with a combination of Blending Solution & Alcohol Inks. After I made my solution in a Mini Mister I read that it is very important to avoid spraying it in your eyes. Beyond the obvious reasons, there is a binding agent in the Blending Solution & can really harm your eyes.
To avoid spraying anything I put in my Mini Misters, whether Pearl Ex & alcohol, or reinker & water, I mark the opposite side of the hole with an X so I know which end to hold away from myself.
- Alcohol Inks - Clover, Sail Boat Blue & Purple Twilight
- Refillable Pen by Ranger. I only put Blending Solution in my pen & put my AI in a paint palette. When it dries up the Blending Solution in the Refillable pen reactivates the dried up AI.
- Stampin Up tree stamp which unfortunately has been discontinued.
- Eggplant SU cardstock
- Tissue paper
- Red Line tape
- Brown Staz-On
When I stamp an image to AI "paint" it with the refillable pen, and don't want the smeared or watercolor effect, I stamp it first with Versamark & then use fine line black embossing powder.
