DT Project #2 by Minxy : Featuring:

DARKROOM DOOR: London set Vol 1
Hi snazzy folks, sorry for my delayed posting of this project, 
I got a little sidetracked as I have just adopted 2 kitties from out local shelter.
If your a kitty lover and wanna see them hop over to my blog.
So on to my project:
I went with the Piccadilly Circus image as my main focus, stamping it in black archival on a pre stamped distressed union jack. 
To highlight the image I glossy accented the stamped image.
Next I used my versafine satin red inkpad to stamp a london bus, and the cut out and mounted both pieces on some black card. I then mounted this to a kraft coloured card,
I finished with a Tim Holtz word band that I brushed with some white acrylic paint to make the message pop, and attached with some screwtop brads.
Just shows that with the same products you can get 2 totally different looks {see Gillian's 3rd project card Here}
Thanks for stopping by, don't forget there is still lots more inspiration to come with Astrid and and Hels first DT projects.

Hi Minxy. Great project. I can see why you fell in love with Wallace & Gromit. They are adorable.

Sorry I'm late commenting Minxy but as you know, I've had a houseful of visitors until this evening. Peace will now reign for a few hours, lol!

I really like the main image stamped over the Union Jack image. What a great effect. Hope your new fur babies are settling in now and letting you sleep, lol!
