Crafty Individuals week: card

Hi, 
Hope you are enjoying all the Crafty Individuals inspiration so far this week. Linda is with us today with a beautiful card and some triple embossing techniques to make a stylish seal.


I LOVE the whole vintage flag thing that is happening this year as a result of the Queen's Jubilee and the 2012 Olympics. One of the stamp plates that I particularly love is Crafty Individual's England, My Country! 
I have used the plate on my all occasion card. Stamped in Maroon Archival and then coloured with Fired Brick Distress Stain I repeat stamped the flag to create the background. 
I then triple embossed with Gold the Brittannia image to embelish... just look at the detail the stamp gives!



Materials
Crafty Individuals: England, My Country
Fired Brick Distress Stain
Maroon Archival Ink
Versamark Ink Pad

See you tomorrow

  5. I love your pieces! I've resisted all 'national' type stamps but your work has convinced me that I do need some! I like the colours you've used because they are NOT red, white and blue! Not very pc of me! Glad I saw this - pity the stamps are already out of stock at my favourite shop!
