Fly the flag


This is my second post today. Please scroll down for my Totally Gorjuss card and a review of a tape glider.

I bought this Saturated Canary image a while ago and for some reason haven't got round to colouring her. Well that has been remedied now. I went all American with this one in honour of 4th July. She has been coloured with Promarkers. I am really enjoying trying different hair colours, It's easy to get stuck using the same colours isn't it and this time I have used Cinnamon, Burnt Sienna, Amber and Buttercup. The gorgeous papers are a pack of 12 x 12, DCWV Nantucket. It's good to delve into my 12 x 12 boxes and use them for cards sometimes for a change. I've used a Sizzix heart die and MS border punch. The flag bunting borders are by K&Co, sentiment is Craftwork Cards.
