The first two challenges were the U.S.A. and Canada. Here are my cards.
The pattern for U.S.A. that inspired me was a bandanna. I had to create my own print using supplies I had on hand at a weekend crop. I sponged the red on using a stencil and then stamped the black background over the sponging.
For Canada I was inspired by an amazing blanket with primary color stripes - a Hudson Bay Blanket. Seriously, that blanket looked so comfy and soft. Wishing it was on my bed (it's getting cold here in Connecticut).
I carried through the stripes by using some acrylic hearts in matching colors.
I'll be sharing more cards over the next few days, and next up is Switzerland and Scotland.
