Scotland the Brave

As the challenge this week at Less is More is:

COLOURS

of

YOUR NATION'S FLAG!

I had no more ado than to get out my faithful thistle stamp.



I decided to incorporate the Scottish Flag into my design. This was done by masking strips of paper and applying ink using an Ink Duster.  On my first attempt I used Broken China Distress Ink but my husband said that it was the wrong colour.  This time I used Impress Lavender which is actually blue. I hope he approves!
