The Great British Blog Hop

 The blog challenge was to papercraft something on the theme of "Something British" set by the wonderful Sunshine Reflections. And here is a joint entry from DD and me! Nothing is more British than a good old stamp and I had a huge pile of them in the crafty stash that just begged for use. After a little bit of brain storming I also came up with the idea of a Union Jack which is also pretty British. Put the two ideas together and voila! A Union Jack made from British stamps. I really like the way the colours have worked out in this piece. I have given it several coats of PVA to protect it and make it quite sturdy and currently it is being displayed with pride on DD's homeschool wall. 

I've really enjoyed doing something different craft wise and I must admit I found myself quite stumped to come up with something for the longest time. It was, as always, a joy to include DD in the project.

  7. This is such am awesome idea! I get so caught up in scrapbook papers and fancy embellishments, that I don't stop and think about something like a stamp. This is paper crafting in it's truest and purest form!

    It was fun hopping with you!
