Open-minded Crafting Fun #13 Patriotic Colours

This fortnight over at Open-Minded Crafting Fun the theme is Patriotic Colours.

I have used fun image by The Stamping Chef called 'Plenty of Balls', which fits in nicely with the theme and also the fact that the world cup starts soon.

As it is a patriotic colour challenge and I am from the UK, my colour theme is Red, White and Blue.

For my background I have used the Union Jack flag, which I cut out on my Silhouette Cameo.

The image is coloured with a  mix of Copics and Promarkers, I'm still trying to get the blending on the skin right, I recently changed to proper blending card, but forgot to use it for this image, Doh!

I finished with a bright red hand tied double Bow and a banner which I designed and cut with my Silhouette Cameo.
