A British Invasion - Artistic Outpost New Releases

I'm excited to share with you some of my creations for the latest Artistic Outpost Release.  These newest collections include both a classic vintage set and a fun and funky homage to all things London. 

Loverly London is a collection of vintage inspired imagery of our idealized London, while London Underground is a bit funkier featuring stylized collage elements.  Both collections are perfect for creating mixed media collage pieces, cards, jewelry and home decor.  They also work wonderfully with some older Artistic Outpost sets!

My projects feature images from both collections, I love the way the work together!  For my first project I created a Bottle Cap art bracelet and necklace set.  Stamping the images in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, then adding color with Distress Inks.  I smashed the Bottle Caps in my Big Shot and had my DH drill holes so I could attach the jump rings and clasp.  I filled in both the Bottle Cap centers and Jewelry Blanks with Ice Resin.
