Tower Bridge ,,,,,, :-)

I LOVE London and one of my fave places ,,, apart from Oxford St ( No 1 shopping street in the world) is the Tower and surrounding area ,, such a lovely place ,,, so when I saw The Tower Bridge stamp by Penny Black at the CHA I knew I had to have it! :-)

The theme this week over on the Penny Black Saturday challenge is to CASE a card by my lovely friend, Helen.



I stamped the image with Walnut Stain DI and then using a Tim Holtz waterbrush pulled out a little of the colour to create a watercolor effect. I then inked around the edges with stormy sky DI. I used Kraft-Core dinations for layering and for the embossed panel. I used a Distressed Stripes folder, sandpaper and a paper distresser , the paper is from My Minds Eye and I added some vintage tape from The Ribbon Girl to finish :-)



thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
