Anyway, here's Lythan's Intro:
Flag it up!
By which I mean I want you to make a card inspired by a national flag. You can use the flag elements as a sketch, or the colours or a motif (stars and stripes for example) You can be patriotic and use your own flag or show your love for all nations by choosing the flag of a different country.
I used masking tape to keep the lower section white, then used a couple of Distress Inks directly onto the card blank to make the background, the words on the little flag were pc generated then the flag shape cut by hand, but otherwise pit was the Silhouette Cameo that did the rest of the work
Th sandcastle template is one I made for another project so that was a result. I used clip-art to create the two kinds of flags - straight ones for those on the border and a "fluttery" shape and flagpole for the one on the sandcastle.
The big black sentiment is also SC cut - the font is called "Hobo medium" and is one of my go-to favourites
So the materials list is pretty simple this week, all I used was ink and card!
I really hope you'll head over to the DCM BLOG and check out what the others have done - they were far more creative in their thinking than I was!
