New Challenge #157 at Glitter N Sparkle - Card 2

My Second Card,
Due to unforeseen circumstances 
I was asked to cover this Image,
for another member of my DT team.

I was so lucky to be able to work with
another of Ike's lovely Images.
Here is my Card.

The Theme at
Anything Goes

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Ike's Art who are offering
3 Images from their store.

Pattie's Creations who are offering
2 Images from their store.

Crafty Sentiments who are offering
3 Images from their store.

Julia Spiri who are offering
2 Images from their store.

My Project this
week is:-
Canada Bundle Digi Stamp
from Ike's Art
(One of our sponsors)

To begin with I used an A4 Sheet of Red Card
which I folded in half to make a Rectangle Base Card.
And layered it up with a piece of Dark Green Stripe Embossed Paper

This bundle has a collection of Images on it, 
so I choose to use the Background, Circle Stamp, 
the Mountie, and I used the Flag twice 
(though I flipped one of them)Next I printed off the Images
  on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens
Dusky Rose
Lipstick Red,
Berry Red
Cool Grey 1
Cool Grey 3
Cool Grey 5
Metallic Gold

Then I fussy cut the Mountie and both the Flags out.

To give the Flags a bit of 3D 
I used my embossing pencil to
 highlight the creases and made it 'Wave'

On the Background I gave it a light
waterwash of colour
using my new Bruynzeel Aquarel Pencils
Light Ultramarine - 77
Ice Green - 68
Olive Green - 63
Dark Green - 61
Light Grey - 73
Dark Grey - 74

Then I went around the Edge with the 
Berry Red Promarker Pen.

For the Stamp Die-Cut it out with a Circle Die
and again went around the edge 
with the Berry Red Pen.

And finally I Die-cut out the Letters
 to make the word 'Canada'
using Red Pearlised Paper
(Ross Papers)
and the Alphabet Nouveau Die's
