Less is More

Now I'm probably pushing my luck here, but I've found out that Monmouthshire (aka Gwent) has its own flag!

So, as I'm busy making cards anyway (August is busy for birthdays) I thought I would do one in the Monmouthshire colours!


Stamp is from Butterfly Flourish by Chocolate Baroque and coloured with Promarkers.

I don't think that Monmouth is exactly a nation, but we'll overlook that small matter as your card is just fab and I love a little thinking outside the box!
Beautiful card!
Thanks so much

Was not able to comment much last week, so am catching up! This is lovely, how do you get such a beautiful finish with promarkers? I just can't get the hang of them.
