A happy 4th freebie

I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July!
A couple of freebie papers for you today.
(I just had to, we are up to 250 subscribers) I am so honored! :~)

I made the lighter version first, then I used yesterdays lesson. I duplicated the layer and changed the blend mode to multiply. Reduced my opacity on the second layer until I liked the color. Same paper but 2 different looks. Try and keep this in mind with the materials you already have. It is a quick and easy way to change the look!
For future designs.... do you have a favorite? Light or Dark?

4th of July freebie
