London Calling

Yesterday I had a fun stamping day and have managed to make six cards in total, three for ladies, two for the gents and an anniversary card, so not a bad days work me thinks.

I thought I would have a look and see what challenges were around as well and first headed off to Kathy’s Waffle Sketch File  to see what the latest sketch is and found this.

I had in mind to use my new Craft Individuals stamp and it works perfectly with Kathy’s sketch.

Here’s what I came up with.

The papers I’ve used are some old Basic Grey Granola.  I really loved this paper when it first came out, so much so that I brought two 12 x 12 pads and two 6 x 6 because I liked the scaled down designs as well,  so I expect I’ll still be using it for the next ten years, Lol!

The London themed stamp as mentioned before is from Crafty Individuals.

I stamped it twice with Black Memento ink and then coloured it with Promarkers and layered some of the images.

The tickets were also stamped using my “Just The ticket” set from Imagine That

I’m linking my card to the Friday challenge over at the Sweet Stampin Blog   where this week’s challenge is “It’s a Man Thing.”
