This week we have a more, serious shall we say, challenge. We want to see those patriotic cards, or cards using the colours of your countries flag!!
PATRIOTIC / COLOURS OF YOUR COUNTRIES FLAG
I decided to make myself a little bookmark - I've recently started reading again, now that I've finished uni, and all of the little bookmarks I made when I first discovered this project have been given away or sold - so I had to make myself a new one! :) I did plan on making a card using one of the gorgeous Tildas the lovely Ann stamped for me - sent all the way from CA!! I know, right?! But I think I need to refine my colouring technique for creases first. LOL! I will update this post with a picture of my first ever attempt at colouring a Tilda when I manage to get a picture of it!
I have used some STUNNING papers from Bearly Mine Designs - Summer's Rose collection, along with a bunch of layered up nesties cut from Blue Bayou, Whisper White and Crumb Cake cardstock. The bookmark has been made using Cherry Cobbler.
The sentiment is from the Garden Bun Bun Fairy Sentiments set from Whimsy Stamps - Raindrop Echo digis! I love the mixture of fonts - so neat!
Of course I had to add some flowers from WOC as well as some Baby Blue liquid pearls for embellishment! :) I ruffled some white seam binding to cover the join of the paper and cardstock.
