LIM week 335 - Colours of your country's flag

I was debating what to do for this weeks Less is More challenge, which is "colours of your country's flag" when I came across this image on a Craft Artist cdrom called "hobbies - classic transport".

I just used the main image as is - only resizing it. The sentiment was in grey and I could not get it to recolour ( I don't really know what I am doing in CA!) - so after printing I used an aqua marker with some water to colour with a brush.

Cut out using a TL pierced square die and mounted onto the base card.

What an awesome card! Loving the image, with those soft smoke trails. The sentiment looks great, so your hand colouring obviously worked brilliantly! A very stylish and clean design - fab. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

What a fab way of interpreting the theme Lynn. We often see the Red Arrows as we are in their flight path from their base.
