Bust out the Flags

Flags; Monochromatic.

Starting with the purple paper:  I stamped the torn-look hole using black ink.  Then I stamped again on rubbish paper which I used as a mask for a bleach technique (actually using toilet cleaner instead of ink) with a HeroArts background newsprint stamp.  I cut the middle out and stamped the sentiment on white card.  I stamped flags on white card and glued them to cord with knots on either end to hang from.  Matted the whole thing onto black card, then onto a white base card.  I like the 3D-ish look of the torn centre, and the colours go well together too.

Thanks for visiting and leaving me a comment.

This is ABSOLUTELY clever!!! I love that you used "toilet cleaner" for your bleach substitute!!! GENIUS! I think I have only attempted the bleach technique once, a long time ago, but you have inspired me to have a go at it again! I really enjoyed your post along with this lovely card explaining how you designed it. You did a fabulous job and can't wait to see more! HUGS ~PaperPajamas
