DV #135 Colours of your Flag

We have an unusal challenge for you this time around at Dream Valley. It’s a colour challenge with a difference. In honour of American Indpendence Day, we want to see what you can come up with that uses the colours of your flag! I’m expecting a great deal of Red,White and Blue as I suspect a lot of our entrants are in the UK or the US, but I am sure there will be many lovely European variations, along with other parts of the world too.

We are sponsored by Angies Cards and Gifts with a prize of three of their digis.

As I am in the UK my colours are from the Union Flag and are Red, White and Blue.

135 Colour of your Flag s

My image is a Kanban stamp, can’t recall what’s it’s called but there are two dress forms and a male figure plus some steampunky extras. I coloured the image with copics and then went over just the skirt with a clear Spectrum Sparkle pen. I also edged down one side with a La Blanche swirl stamp to introduce a bit more blue into the image area.

My background is a Candy Button design, but I have overstamped it with the red script and the red circles. The splatters and the rest of it were already on the paper. It’s all matted onto red mirri card. A sentiment and some clear gems I coloured red completed it.

This second picture is much closer in colour, but because of the lighting conditions does not capture the sparkle that the top picture does.

I look forward to seeing you over at Dream Valley with your flag’s colours, and please remember to tell us what those colours are, and where you are from.
