Cities of the World


Cities of the World is the new theme  at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
It was my turn to choose the theme, little did I realise that my initial title choice would  have us getting our 'thinking caps on,'  big style.
As we are celebrating the Queens Jubilee this year and the Olympics are fast approaching and I live in the U.K.  I am off to London.
Please pop over and see the destinations  that my fabulous  team mates went to  and  get all the details.
 Remember we like to see some stamping on your entry.  Also we are looking forward to see where you will be visiting.

The  background  was randomly stamped with a stamp from Chocolate Baroque.
 Next  I used a mask of our Union Jack flag  dabbing it with Distress Inks, Broken China and Fired Brick.
The collage stamp of London is from Crafty Individuals, with the other additions coming  from my stash.
The ribbon trim was a real find  last time we were in Yorkshire, I loved the row of Guardsmen.

Thank you for stopping by , I realy appreciate your comments.
