Cheerio!

Here's a card I created for Artistic Outpost
I've used stamps from Loverly London and London Underground.  These sets work so well together!
 I stamped a collage for the background using the London skyline in black with Big Ben. I added the flags and "London" with Distress Pumice Stone ink.  My stamps had a touch of red ink on them so the color isn't true Pumice Sone.  I like the effect!  I also inked around the edges.   I stamped the gentleman separately and fussy cut him to mount with foam tape over the background. I added a touch of Pumice Stone ink to his coat and hat. I chose paper colors from Graphic 45 to coordinate for a very monochromatice color scheme.  "Cheerio" is stamped in black and clear heat embossed.  A great guy card!


Stay tuned for my Spellbinders Blog Frenzy post early tomorrow morning!!!!
Happy Day!

Your projects are wonderful. I like that you don't have to use the dies just for a book....they can be used for cards, too. TFS!!
