Best of British-Mini

Who can remember the film "The Italian Job"? What a classic film that is with Michael Caine. I had to look what year that was originally made, 1969. I can't believe that!  I think it has since had a remake in 2003, but you can never beat the original, can you?  For those of you that have never seen it,  it was about a well planned heist in Italy, the getaway cars were all mini's, if you have never seen it, you really must!  This card always reminds me of that film.  Like the film, it is well put together with lots of layers to make the union jack(remember which way the flag goes up!).  The mini is stamped using Creative Expressions stamps and watercoloured in using Stamping Up inks, real red, basic grey and basic black. Using this technique, like with any watercolour method, if you want a stronger colour then you must wait for it to dry before applying another layer.  Once done, cut out and mount with foam pads, stamp Mini as a label and adhere to flag.  The mini is a well loved British car and this card is for all of those mini lovers or those proud to be British. x
