It would be so awesome if that were true! But right now I am only taking crafty trips to London using my Paris to London stamp set from Tim Holtz. :)
The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show is Passport to Fun. Cross check complete!
The base is a 6X6 piece of chipboard. I put gesso on a page from an old text book. The I put some of Tim Holtz's distress paint on my craft mat and sloshed it around. Not too much-I didn't want to make brown. The I stamped some of the images from the Paris to London set using the paints and some with just regular ink. There are these little stamps and I stamped them on white paper and painted them with different colors of distressed paints. They are in the left top corner. I cut out the word London and used paint around the edges. I used tea distress embossing powder for the gentleman in the middle. I inked him up in various ways because I thought he was too dark. I still think he might need something (maybe a different picture LOL) but I put the pop dots on him and let him be.
He could be like walking away from all of the lights of the city and that casts a shadow on him. Hmmm...that's a good story. ;) The twine is from Maya Arts and it's black and white-or was until I used some distressed stain to color it. :)
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time my friends...let's head up to London! :)
