The Penny Black blog is featuring the new “Cities” stamps today. Paris, New York, London!

Although I have never been to London it does have a bit of a reputation so I sponged in the colours of rain.  I masked first, sponged the top half in a grey blue, the bottom half in blue and then positioned the London stamp in the middle. The one bright spot on this dreary day was coloured with marker.

Make sure you check out the New York and Paris.


Stamps:London (Penny Black)
Inks: Bordering Blue, Marina Mist, Real Red, Versafine Onyx Black

    Oh Heather, do I ever like this! The stamp is lovely, and you’ve done the perfect thing with it — giving it color without overpowering it. The sponging is beautiful, and I love the way you’ve created the perfect London weather with it. Giving the umbrella that touch of red really caps it off. Lovely!

    Oh wow, I love how you’ve given this image colour Heather and you’re right the perfect colour for London :0) The detail of the red umbrella and the image spilling outside the inked strip is just brilliant, I love it :0)

    Heather, this is just beautiful. You captured the misty rain perfectly and is was pure genius to have just that little focal point of red. Such an artist.

    This is fantastic, Heather! I love the way the red umbrella stands out from all of those moody blues.

    That card certainly reminds me of London although, in its defence, I must state that the sun shone brilliantly when we visited some years ago. A great card.

    May I add another challenge. or three.

    Melbourne, Canberra, King Island.

    I have images in mind, but will be interested to see how you represent these significant places.


  17. […] playing with it.  The first card I saw of hers that wowed me and made me want to CASE it was her London card. I immediately thought of this Rubber Romance Paris stamp that I’ve had for a long […]
