Anything Goes Challenge #68 - Anniversaries

Hi fellow bloggers, time for another challenge over at Anything Goes and wow the DT have come up with some fab creations.

This weeks challenge is Anniversaries - to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee so it seemed only right to use my new  Pomp and Pageantry sheet  from IndigoBlu which I had bought from the Craft Den.


I haven't done a scrapbook page for ages and these Papermania Portobello Road papers were crying out to be used and they teamed up so well with the Pomp and Pageantry stamps - well I thought so anyway! I stamped the Pomp and Pageantry and Quintessentially English sentiment stamps randomly over the background paper and the Great Britain stamp was coloured with Distress markers and then stamped onto white card four times, cut out with a punch and glued randomly onto the background paper.

The lady, gent and lions heads were stamped and coloured with DIs, cut out and glued on with pinflair glue for dimension.  ER letters are chipboard which were painted with gold Eco paint and the crown was cut with a spellbinders die and I used felt and  gems to decorate it.

The flowers were made with coredinations paper and TH floral strip die and the bunting was made using some cocktail sticks with the union flag on which I got from a local discount shop. I made a mould from a rose shaped button and then used Fimo to make the red, white and blue roses. The photo was downloaded from the internet.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:
