London Calling......

Another page for my Altered Dictionary Page over at The Craft Barn Alpha Challenge.  The letter chosen for this fortnight is "C" and I have chosen Capital, I really couldn't choose just one as there is so much choice with this letter so I may be back with another page...........sooon lol.

Firstly I used gesso on the pages after I had stuck them together left to dry.  I used Artistic Outpost Stamps London Elements, Distress Inks for background and Studio 490 masks, Adirondack Ink in Red and Black. Also street names which I cut from a magazine.

Telephone box was stamped in Adirondack ink onto white card so this gave the effect of glass panels, the telephone image was cut from magazine.  All the stamps used are from the London Elements Set of stamps. Studio 490 mask was used for the bars and spots.  Before you all shout at me about the bridge.....it isn't London Bridge.............. I know it's Tower Bridge...........

Have really enjoyed altering these pages and really enjoying this challenge pop over to The Craft Barn and join in the fun also great tips and projects shared there everyday.

Items Used

Distress Inks faded jeans; barn door; frayed burlap; chipped saphire
Ranger Archival Ink; Vernillion;  Jet Black
Distress Stains Picket Fence
