Wish I was there ,,,,,,,, :-)

Hi again :-) I am back with a card I made for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge whose theme is No Patterned Paper :-)

I have recently bought these fab London themed stamps, Miniful and The Tower Bridge so I wanted to use them :-)




I stamped the image and coloured with copics, I then inked the edges with Stormy Sky DI and glittered the edges with star dust stickles. To make the background I used the stamp resist technique, I used a Hero Arts Distressed Stripes stamp, inked with versamark and embossed with white EP. I then used several colours of distress inks to create a weird looking night sky ,, well London does have pollution and it creates all sorts of reflective colours Open-mouthed smile I then sprayed the whole thing with Lindy's Gang Long John Silver glimmer spray ,,, soo gorgeous and shimmery IRL ! I then stamped the London Bridge with Archival ink and coloured slightly with Distress Markers.

The signs are from a Unity ‘Along for the Ride set and I added a strip of ribbon to finish :-)




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