Please pop around to visit them all to see how we made them and of course we all LOVE to receive comments so please leave some ,,, :-)

I love the new Penny Black London series and I wanted to use my new ‘On Guard stamp :-)

I stamped the image twice onto Neenah card so I could pop the guard and chicken in front. I coloured with copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo DI, I used a Gold Spica pen on all the gold bits of the Guard’s box and glossy accents on the chickens beaks. The fab crown was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo ( FAB machine) and I decorated it with various gems, I even gave her a ruby ring ! :-)

I used red card for layering and made the background using a mask and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo DI,I tried to make it look like Buckingham Palace wall !! ,, did it work ?? :-) I embossed another strip of card, which was coloured with the inks, with a new Spellbinders So Trendy folder. The ribbon is from Hero Arts and I used some Hemptique twine to hang a fab Blue Moon London charm. I finished with a few Metallic Dew Drops and some zig zag card cut using an EK Success Zig Zag Punch :-)

We have the super talented Liz Marsden in the June Designer Spotlight so please hop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see what she and the DT have made this week ! :-)
