Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

This morning I managed to make my entry into the Allsorts Challenge this week.
The challenge theme is the colours of your countries flag so as mine is Red, White, and Blue this is what I made.
I was tempted to use the colours of the Welsh flag where I was born, but was not so sure if I was able to use that.
I went with a seaside image as that lends itself to the colours.
Made a boob,boob, and had to redo the image after photoing the first one as the sea horizon was lopsided didn't notice it till I had it in photo editing program good job I had another image I could use as you get 2 sheets of the same images.
Think maybe it's still slightly lopsided not good with straight lines due to my bad eyesight.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The papers are from B&M.
The image is a Joanna Sheen's book of Faye Whittaker lovely drawings.
I wanted it to look like you were looking through a telescope.
Cut the bunting by hand. 

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make they really make my day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

LOve this Jenny, the bold colour combo, beautiful design and sweet image are perfect together. The bunting looks fabulous, horizon looks fine to me... or maybe my eyes aren't perfect either :)))

Aquarius said...

Great effect and good choice of paper to go with the fun image.

Yet another lovely card Jenny, I am always so impressed how you carry the theme and colours to the inside as well, really makes then that extra bit special. Many thanks for joining us again at ALlsorts challenge.

As for lopsided, I'm an expert at that, trouble is I often don't notice until I see them on screen but which time it's far to late to correct.
