London Gent (Published)

Hello Everyone
Recently I shared art which was published in Stampington & co’s 400 More Ideas.  This post contains another card which was also in the same publication, a card using some stamps from Oxford Impressions’ fabulous London Telegraph set  (also available from That’s Crafty).
Unusually for me, this card is only 4″x4″ in dimension.
The base consisted of watercolour paper which had previously been prepared with homemade spray, the colour I would say was lettuce, which  hasn’t shown up well in this washed out photograph.  I then overstamped a text stamp before layering up stamped elements which were stamped onto various surfaces which provided a nice mix of textures.DIGITAL CAMERAThe gent was stamped onto kraft style paper (re-cycled cardboard) and some text stamped onto cork fragment. DIGITAL CAMERAI remember I also stamped onto parchment paper to give extra texture to the card.
DIGITAL CAMERAI will be absent from Blogland for a few days (keeping my fingers crossed it will not be any longer than that) due to health matters. On my return I will enjoy catching up with your Blogs. My post for That’s Crafty, on Sunday, is scheduled and if all goes well I might be able to schedule another post between now and then.
I haven’t forgotten about the promised Giveaway. At the time of writing I am unsure if it will be posted this week or next but if you like stamping then keep a look out!
Thank you as always for your visit.

    Hi Lynne, just having a break from cleaning, as Carolyn and I are swapping houses for 2 weeks. I hope all goes well with your health. This post is astounding, you and Annie have been such an inspiration to me with the olde style vintage. I love what you have created, but like you I will be having a holiday from blogging, maybe just to answer a few posts. You take care of yourself my dear and I’ll speak to you soon. Hugs Rita xxx

    Beautiful image, and such lovely layering. The parchment paper and cork add such great texture, as you say, and I love the green text.

    Oh this totally reminds me of those old offices, where men like yours used to work, wearing elegant glasses and perfect suits. Lovely work again Lynne, I always enjoy your creations immensely! I am so so very sorry, however, that your health does not allow you to enjoy summer as you should be doing my friend… Wishing you the best, with thoughts of you, Ira x
