The theme for the postcard swap this month on UK Stampers is red, white and blue.
It's impossible not to think of flags with that combination but I decided to try for something other than the star spangled banner or our own Union Flag and settled on the French flag instead.
The blue and red sections are just ink swiped directly from the pad onto the card. I used alpha stamps to add bleu, blanc, rouge to the three sections ("blanc" was done with Versamark and clear embossing powder) and then overstamped with a scripty stamp in Antique Linen. A bit of Antique Linen sponging helps to bring out the clear embossing a bit more, too.
