London by night by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! I've made an ATC for a change today
using the lovely new London A6 stamp set :)





1. I made an inky background using Distress Ink dusty concord and rusty hinge that had been made into spray inks in a mini mister with some Perfect Pearl Mist in pearl added on top for a hint of twinkliness ;)

2. Stamped the London skyline in Archival black onto this and added the hand writing with a white pen.

3. I used the new Distress Markers in fired brick and chipped sapphire to colour the union jack flag and stamped it onto a white ATC blank then added a bit of colour on the background with dusty concord re-inker and a Cut and Dry nib.

4. The word London was stamped in Archival again onto a spare piece of the same coloured card I used for the skyline and attached to a piece of black card before being stuck down with glossy accents.

5. The skyline was then attached in the same way and some Distress walnut stain added to the edges to age a little.


London is a very magical place don't you think? :) See you again soon!
xoxo Sioux
