Sponging Spectacular & Sponged Background

... for UPA: I don't seem to be able to get away from using the Union Jack (lol) but have to admit I really like the design of the flag and I have a fabulous stencil for it - so I have to use it! The background of the card is sponged with distress inks on a lightly textured ivory card - if you like it, please feel free to use the background in your art
I used the background to create a A6 card. The stamps are from Artistic Outpost and Betty's Creations. The crown was cut out, colouring with golden gel pen and embellished with some blings. Petra.

Love to see my flag used in graphics. It was designed by a king, apparently! Your stencil is very pretty. I wonder how it would look printed on fabric? Thank you for sharing.
