Celebration of Nations

Challenge #137 over at Allsort's is to create a project centred around the colours of people's flags or about the Olympics

I chose to go with the colours of the Union Jack rather than anything sporty

I really like this decoupage but I've no idea which company it comes from. It was in a mixed pack that I bought ages ago from ebay. If anyone recognises it I'd love it if you could let me know :o) It's die cut too so no fiddly messing about with the flower stems

Only three of the flowers are layered, so again no fiddly stems or leaves to wrestle with

The flowers are so pretty and one of my favourites

Showing the depth of the layers

Materials used

Unknown decoupage
Basic cardstock
Spellbinder's Lattice Rectangle Nestabilities die Thanks, Trish, I'm loving these :o)
Collall 3D gel
