Tricoleur...

Good morning every one,  It's still ooh la la French over at Make My Monday and this week we would like to see the 
TRICOLEUR
on your projects... in other words use the colours
red, white and blue  
with a French theme
I used diamond pattern stamp from Chocolate Baroque's Royal Fleur de Lys stamp set for the main focus focus. It was stamped twice, once in blue, once in red onto white card stock the red triangles are heat embossed. I then cut out the red diamonds which were mounted onto the blue with sticky fixes,  as you can see leaving some of the blue showing.. it was then mounted onto dark blue card stock. The background is from Tim Holtz roughly inked with red and blue stamped onto white card stock that was mounted onto a red square card.
hopefully you can see the dimension.

The Paris tag is also from TH the little Fleur de Lys was embossed before being cut out and placed onto the card.
Pop across to MMM and take a look at the inspiration provided by the DT. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with... if its any thing like the last three weeks it will be amazing.
take Care
