London Postcard


How about a postcard from London?  The images from Loverly London, London Underground and Ephemeral Backgrounds blend together perfectly to create a fun postcard from London.

The background was stamped using the ledger stamp and a grey dye ink.  Then I added in the Postcard stamp across the top using black ink.   I hand drew the line using a ruler to separate the sections. 

The tower was stamped in black ink and lightly colored with a light coppery brown.  The London was stamped in red ink.  The red lines on the bottom and side are from the Underground stamp. I masked them off. I smeared a light coat of white paint which pulled some of the red into the postcard for a distressed effect.

Have a wonderful weekend!
