This Thursday challenge 16

we have been going 3 months already and I know I have enjoyed playing our challenges with you.

So this weeks challenge is called Wave the flag So you can take inspiration from any flag . wether it be the colours or shapes or as per usual you can use the title.

Our sponsor this week is Dinky Dots crafts. The prize is a set of 6 cute stamps

I had the football fan stamp. although you could easily use him for any little boy occasion, due to the theme wave the flag he has ended up a bit of a sports fan.
I did ave an idea of using him as a builder of a snowman. With the title job well done, but couldn't get the flag to work /So anyway here are my examples for this week

I am very proud to be british, and also am very proud of our olympic team this year . So this is a card for a friend of mine who is male and also very proud of being british
I am not really into football, but I had some Dovecraft masculine papers and chipboard and I thought they would work well with th theme. I stamped the boy onto card. Then cut him out stuck him onto the soccer is a kick in the grass Then the chipboard football border onto that. I then atuck the whole thing onto an A5 card blank with the boys head just over the fold edge of the card. Then cut around the whole thing.

I coloured this boy in the colours of the itialian flag, and gave him a darker toned skin. I put a ribbon strip around a square coregated card blank. Then attached a section of Dovecraft paper to the top (he shoots he scores) and the chipboard sticker to the bottom.

So thats my examples for this week.

Catch you all next week
