Scrap Africa ~ Challenge #6; Colour Combo

Today...on this real winters day in South Africa, we have another challenge hosted by Scrap Africa! Now please...remember that this is not exclusive for South African scrappers!!! All my International friends are so welcome to PLEASE join in our fabulous challenges!

We still have Scrapbook Studio as our sponsor for this challenge...


Enter your projects in one or both of the challenges and stand a chance 
of winning a gift voucher to the value of R 200 (20 euro).



If you happened to be somewhere around Jeffery's Bay, make sure you pay them a visit. 
Otherwise you can do your shopping for all things scrappy in their online shop. 
It is filled with newest and coolest stuff a good scrapper can wish for.

So here is the challenge for you...

Our South African flag!!!


use at least 3 colors featured on the flag in your project.
You can use: black, white, red, green, blue or yellow.
Additionally you can add grey, cream of beige.
No other color can be used!
The colors on your photographs are not taken into account - 
it doesn't count towards the minimum 3 and it can be any color.
Another thing to make it clear: 
you are not required to use precise colors as it is on the flag but! -
green must be green and blue must be blue. 
It should be yellow and not orange, and it should be red and not pink.
Please feel free to ask us if you need to know anything else.

And now...here is my LO incorporating the colours Black, White, Red, Green and a teeny, tiny bit of Yellow!



Coincidently I had a photo of Michelle in her Duet costume that she wore in America in 2006. The flag on her costume I worked out with  sequence's and beads! Yes...it took me ages to do and I don't think the judges realised it was our National Flag for no one even made any mention about it!



I used Tim Holtz craft core and embossed it...and low and behold, just see how fitting it was to have the RSA in capital letters! That made deciding on a title so much easier for me...



The Fiery Flourishes from Enmarc Crafts were painted in Black, painted with craft crackle paint when dry, and then painted with Red allowing the black to show through the cracks!



I stamped with a Kaisercraft stamp, embossed in black and then used Mix'd Media Inx's...I sprayed them with water to make them 'run' and spritzed some Smootch Spritz as well.
