At Mad For Markers this month, we have been invited to celebrate this great day by using the colours red/white/blue (from our national flag) or green/yellow (national colours recognised aroundthe world and used by our sporting teams) in our creations!
I loved this idea, as Australia Day is also my birthday - great to think that every year I have a public holiday for my birthday! However, I got stuck ... I got some new Copics for Christmas, and some new Lil Lolita digi stamps in the New Year, and seeing as the Copics were blues, I thought I'd go with the red/white/blue theme .... I coloured my image, and then *block*! I had red papers, blue papers, and of course, we all have something white, but could not *think* of how to put it together!
After much fiddling around (and the mess on the dining table is testament to that!) this is what I came up with ... and now that it's finished, I really like the end result!
This is also the first time I have used a paper doily in anything I have ever done - and I really like the effect!
So, I am entering this card in the Mad For Markers Australia Day Challenge plus the Copic Creations Anything New Challenge, as I have new Copics, a new stamp, and new doilies! - enjoy!
