London Calling - Artistic Outpost Blog Hop

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Design Team Blog Hop!  Each month on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, the fabulous designers at Artistic Outpost will be showcasing projects created with various Artistic Outpost Plates, this months hop focus is on Loverly London and London Underground. While visiting the other designers Blogs, you might also notice the "red theme" throughout the hop.  Artistic Outpost runs a challenge every month, where you are eligible to win an Artistic Outpost Prize Package when you create a project using Artistic Outpost images and the provided theme for that month.  Click here to read more about February's Challenge.


For inspiration, I used the Mojo Monday Sketch, stamping and masking images from Loverly London on Vanilla card stock then cutting with Spellbinders Circle Dies.  I added a bit of color to Big Ben using STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, then added some clouds by sponging STAEDTLER Chalk Pastels around a Scallop edge.  On the pattern paper panel, I added the postmark script from Loverly London, on the middle panel the text comes from London Underground, and on the sentiment panel, the sentiment from London Underground is stamped in Black, with the buildings from Loverly London overstamped in Cocoa.
