For these reasons, I have used both of them as symbols for my entry to this week's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge over at the Simplicity Blog where we were asked to submit a patriotic card. I am late in completing it and I would have like the flag to be more defined but..hey ho..
The song "Flower of Scotland" is our chosen alternative to the British National anthem and it is sung at events both large and small, at home and abroad, so I have used the title as the sentiment on my card.
I created the flag by cutting a stencil and colouring with a Promarker. Probably not the correct colour but it will do.
Stamps - Lavinia Stamps , Alphabet - Hero Arts
Ink - Encore Metallic Purple, Adirondack lettuce
I really wasn't happy with the first attempt so I just had to try again. Better pleased with this one, although the lettering is still not right and I wish that I had a more accurate colour of green for the foliage. This time I used a water colour pencil and a water brush to get a better result for the flag. 3rd attempt????
