These Penny Black stamps were combined to make the card:
|Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge|
Love London, Warm Wishes
In keeping with the Olympic style, here are some “quick and fast” instructions….
A white cardstock base was dappled with clouds using a sponge dauber with Summer Sky and Danube Blue Memento inks. A stamped and “fussy cut” Tower Bridge was elevated on top. The piece was then framed with an oval die-cut window from Blue Skies cardstock stamped with Warm Wishes in Danube Blue Memento. Strips of Olive Grove cardstock were stamped and decorated for dimensional horizontal elements.
Tip/Hint: Large stamps such as structural buildings make great designer papers. In this sample, Houses of Parliament was used to add a random pattern to the decorative strip on the top of the card.
