Man about Town.

This weeks challenge over at Try it on Tuesdays is 'Anything Goes with Acetate'.
so we would like you to show us some acetate in your project and tell us how you used it.
Please pop over and see what my fabulous team mates have been making.
We will also have some exciting news for you shortly,  welcoming our new DT members.

 This  part of my card, is an  image of a dapper gent stamped onto the acetate and fixed with brads.
All the stamps I used are by the Artistic Outpost.
The red shading is barn door and worn lipstick distress inks .
I added a small watch face on Big Ben and painted this part with watercolours.

Challenges - The Artistic Outpost -February referral program Shades of Red.

Thankyou for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.


  1. Love all these images of London Yvonne and you've collaged them beautifully! Genius idea with the clock face:) It's nice to see some British stamps albeit made by our overseas friends although Papermania now have some in their Urban stamp range.
