june card swap

Here is my june card swap. The theme was kingdom and castles and as it was close to the Queen's Jubilee at the time I had to do something containing this event.
My swap partner lives in Belgium so I thought this would be great for Anneke.
I used indigo blue stamp and embossed with my favourite products from stampendous. The fran-tage technique. I do like all their products and its like a little chemist going on with all the embossing powders, mica flakes and german glass glitter. A little of this and a bit of that and then watch it all bubble sticking together!!!!!!.
The Union Jack was embossed on newspaper with ivory enamel embossing powder and the background was also stamped and embossed with antique gold. I then distressed with tim holtz inks to give my card colour. I used mahogany, fire brick and barn door and went around the edges with blue jeans.
Then I started to put all my products surrounding the flag! I plaited ribbon with the red, white and blue and put flowers in the corner.
It seems such a long time ago the Queens Jubilee but I still thought I wanted to show my card.
Thank you for reading my blog.
