Less is More


Well with all my commitments done I could settle down to making a card of this weeks Less is More challenge. Yes that means more red white and blue.
I had stamped  and coloured quite a few of the Union Jack bunting from stamping up transparent set and it didn't seem right not to use them.
So using the strip sketch from another LIM challenge I had the idea of bunting fluttering in the wind. So using a cloud template sponged the the clouds and used the deep edge lattice punch for the fence. It just so happened that I my new stamps from Stampin Up was on my desk and it had a bird stamp.
Then it was a case of swirling and sticking the bunting, with a Penny Black sentiment.

Clever idea with the bunting. I like how you did a strip of the sky, just enough to get the effect without overwhelming the card.
