Rule Britannia!

I had to make a 'guy' card this weekend, these are soooo easy arn't they - not!! My base card has been cut with a Go Kreate die, and the layers are Kanbans from the Carnaby Street range. The top layer on the base is cut from a sheet of Pink Paislee mistables, and inked with Barn Door and Chipped Sapphire DI's.
The Union Flag was stamped onto red card with Indigo Blue Flitter glue and then gilded with their gilding flakes. All of the stamps are Artistic Outpost's from the London Underground and Lovely London sets.
This has been stamped onto black card with Brilliance ink in gold, then I've gone over the top with Rocket Red and clear embossed.
This has been stamped onto black card then painted over with Perfect Pearls in Interference Red, and misted with water to set. The bling is from Poundland and very nice it is too lol.
The rosette has been cut with the Union Flag Kanban card, and a lion charm stuck in the middle. More Rocket Red for the soldiers. The referral programme at Artistic Outpost this month is Shades of Red and there is a fab prize for the winner.
I'm also entering this into the Fashionable Stamping challenge which is Make it a Guy Thing, and The Stampman's which is Embellish it.
Thanks very much for looking x
