London

A while ago, I just HAD TO HAVE a set of 'London' stamps by Artistic Outpost (especially as they were virtually sold out everywhere!!)
Anyway, I finally made a card using them today.  Definately not a one-off, I'll be using these stamps time and again.

I used TH Distress Inks - Broken China, Barn Door and Antique Linen to achieve a vintage look:


I used a distressing tool on the edges of all elements and then inked them with my blending tool.  I also used a paint brush to colour the Union Jack stamp to achieve the correct colours:

Finally, I inked some Card Candi Chips with Distress Ink - this gives the look of a velvet button:

I stamped onto Linen card and paper which adds to the vintage look.  This card was so quick and easy to make - probably about 15 minutes!  I'll definitely be making more with this set :)

Have a good week xx
