Bits of London

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Blog Hop!   Today the DT is sharing projects featuring London!

Here is my project inspired by London: 


I used a fun fold called the Diamond Fold.  I love how it gave me a chance to add different images on the various surfaces.


Here is the full card laid out to show the various panels on the card. 


I used the Artistic Outpost plates: Loverly London, London Underground, Neverland, Windows and Doors and Jane's Countryside


After all the scoring, I cut pieces of white cardstock to fit each panel.  After that I stamped the background of all the panels using the text from the Loverly London in Versafine Toffee.  I sponged the edges of each panel with Ranger Distress Inks - Stormy Sky.  Then each panel contains images in Ranger Archival Ink Coffee and Crimson Red from the various plates. 

To see all the other fabulous projects from the design team:


Thanks for stopping by!
