Happy Birthday America

Happy 4th of July

I had the idea to alter a styrofoam egg into Mr. America

The outlines for his jacket and tie are painted with DecoArt 3D Gloss Enamels in black and Decoart Writer in white

DecoArt Traditions, Americana white acrylic and Dazzling Metallics in festive red for his clothing.
His arms are pipe - cleaners, number 4 is cut from cardboard and painted. The flag is a heat embossed artist trading card. My english readers can get DecoArt products here

Have a rockin' 4th of July
This will be my second entry for the Simon says Stamp and Show challenge *Anything goes*
