Design Team Project #2 ....


Good morning everyone Gillian here,  today I'm back sharing a quick & simple card using the gorgeous Darkroom Door London Collection Vol 1 & 2, some 6x6 white cardstock, Versafine Ink (Satin Red), Archival Ink (Jet Black), the background paper is from the Kaisercraft Black & White Timeless 6 1/2 Paper Pad.

 I love the "Sketch" like appearance of the Big Ben image to which I have simply stamped three times, masking off part of the stamp each time to give the appearance of the iconic landmark fading into the distance.


I will be back later in the week with one final project. To be in with a chance of winning either Vol 1 or Vol 2 from the London Collection, stop by and leave a comment HERE.

Hi Gillian, I love the way the Big Bens keep getting smaller & smaller. The stamp is just beautiful. I too like the 'sketch' like feel. Thanks for the inspiration.

Beautifully classy & I love the way those spots of the bavkground pick up on Big Ben's clockface. the symmetry of the red ribbon with the red London banner is terrific - what a super piece of designwork.

That's wonderful, the masking was very effective. My Pan Pastels have arrived, I'm hoping to have a play later on. Thanks again. Kirsten

Love the effect of the masked images Gillian and the black and white with touches of red together with the spotty background give this card a really chic modern look.
