Flying The Flag

Once I saw the colour challenge over at The Play Date Cafe I knew that I would be using my new stamps from Artistic Outpost, London Underground and Loverly London.
These colours just screamed out for me to use my London stamps and here is the card I created.
I stamped the flag using Distress Stains fired brick and faded jeans along with Keep Calm And Carry On, cut out and sponged the edges with faded jeans ink.
I have also added some stamping in grey and added one of the images to a bottle cap and added Glossy Accents to give a dimensional finish. As I have used words on my piece I would also like to enter this piece for the Sunday Stamper which this week is to use WORDS in your artwork along with Simon Says Stamp and Show A WORD. I'm hoping I can create a second piece for Simon Says Stamp and Show too this week with being so early off the mark for a change LOL.
To complete I have added two small squares with highlights of the images and matt and layered onto co-ordinated card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Tracy x x
