AT LAST!

YAY!  For the first time since coming back from UK (4 weeks ago!) I've actually managed to enter Less Is More's challenge ON TIME!!  ha ha haaa!

Slightly sneaky actually as last week LIM's challenge was 'Colours Of Your Flag'... well, I reckon I got ESP because despite missing deadline on that challenge, I made one that fits THIS week's theme - USE INK!

So here is last week's 'ESP effort' - using the direct-to-paper technique I masked the crown and swiped the Not Quite Navy ink pad... too too simple!

Using the same technique, here is my actual entry for the Lady & Diva LIM...


And to prove I still follow the LIMettes staunchly... yet miss the deadline regularly!  Here is my first Flag effort... made with my brother in mind as we are both going through a Union Jack obsession whilst both living as expats in various places!
