Flag inspiration

The Less is More challenge this week is ....

This week it's time for another colour challenge and for your delectation this week, we have decided to ask you make a card  using the 
COLOURS 
of 
YOUR NATION'S FLAG!
We should be able to see quite a variety of colours this week as we are fortunate enough to have crafters from all around the world sharing in our challenges. If you could describe the colours of your flag or include an image of it, that would be great.


This is my card based on the Union Jack



For the background I used a piece of red card & a piece of spotted Bazil both of which i put though my nifty tool to make them corrugated to give a bit of texture. 
I then mounted them both onto a piece of blue card.


I then stamped the image onto the blue card using white ink & cut off part of the image & inked the edges to give a bit of definition.


Here you can see the blue base coming through the white ink.


To finish I stamped the sentiment straight onto the card.

So there you have it my Union Jack inspired red white & blue card.

I really love your Paper Artsy stamp, using an outline really lends itself to this type of image. Really like how you've put your card together:-)
