Good Afternoon from a very wet and miserable Shetland, we are certainly not having a summer here. I have two cards today for this week's Less is More Challenge - Colours of you Nation's Flag. First off I have to apologise to Mandi for bothering her with a stupid question, I must learn to read things thoroughly before jumping in with my two left feet! I almost failed my driving theory test because I didn't read the questions properly.
On to my cards, I am English but have lived longer in Scotland than I have in England and I am married to a Scotsman, so I have gone with the Scottish Flag of Blue and White. When I finished it I didn't think the blue was dark enough to represent the Saltire, but as it's the right blue for our Shetland Flag I am still posting it. The images on both cards are from Fantastic Florals Unmounted Plate from Chocolate Baroque. For this card I used the resist technique by stamping and embossing with white embossing powder and then using cut and dry foam I added the blue using DI Faded Jeans and Adirondack Stonewash, the sentiment is printed directly to the card.
For the second card I stamped another of the stamps with Versamark and embossed with white ep, had a few probs with this one, because I was working in artificial light on pearlised card and ended up with lots of white speckles. I got there in the end. The sentiment was also stamped and embossed with white ep.
Many thanks for visiting today and I hope you like my cards and thank you in advance for any comments you may wish to make.
