Less is More - Colours of your nations flag

Well this week at Less is More, Chrissie and Mandi have come up with a fantastic challenge to make a card using the colours of your flag. I was going to stick with the English red and white but decided to add a bit of blue in there as well.
I did start making a card using a teabag folded flower made out of red vellum and also made a windmill with red vellum but couldn't decide how to use them in a card, so after watching Barbara Gray this morning on Create & Craft I decided to get her fabulous balloon stamps out.


Used the largest of the 3 stamps and coloured it with copics, should have really used a blue ink to stamp with but unfortunatley I dont have one that I can then use my copics with so afraid had to stamp in black. Mounted the image on to some red card and stamped the message straight on the card in blue.



Hope everyone is having a fab weekend, we have just had a great thunder storm here, typically I had just wartered the garden tsk :)
