Union Jack with bulldog ..

Hello everyone,

This is my second post for today and this challenge is the one from Crafty Individuals.
The theme for September is 'Anything goes', so I made this card:

I started with a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller than my card front. I coloured this piece of card stock with Neocolors. These are water-soluble crayons and I love them. I created the Union Jack flag using different shades of yellows and oranges and a touch of red. I just scribble them on and blend them with my fingers. I outlined the lines with a black crayon. 
Next I randomly stamped the background and went around the outside of the card with the same black crayon; later on I decided it was not black enough and I went around again with a black ink pad. The bulldog was stamped with Memento black ink and coloured with Copic Markers. I then cut him out and adhered them to the card on top of some washi tape to ground him. Lastly I stamped the sentiment, cut it apart, glued it on to the card and went around it with a black pencil. The panel was then adhered onto a blank card. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today ! 


  1. He looks marvellous - so proud against the flag - and I think it's much more uplifting in the new colours! Gorgeous autumnal shades.

  2. Love your choice of colours for the flag xxx

  3. Corrie you made it to the challenge, how wonderful to see you there!
    He is perfectly at home against the flag which kudos to you for creating by hand! I like that you worked with your own colours, bringing your own flair to the flag and I also like that you repeatedly stamped the text onto the flag.
