I’ve kept the majority of my card pretty neutral and started by repeat stamping the London skyline stamp from Scene It City onto the base card using SSS Fog Ink. It’s pretty subtle but I like that it doesn’t overpower the hippos in front. I then took a piece of SSS Fog Gray cardstock and a heart die from SSS Ornate Love and ran that through the Gemini. I scored some horizontal lines across that window panel for extra interest and added it to my base with DST.
I then took two of the images from the Love London set, stamped them onto Neenah with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured them with Copics (numbers listed below). I fussy cut them out but there are coordinating dies for this set. Next I took the sentiment from the set, white heat embossed it onto red cardstock and die cut it with the thinnest of the SSS Sentiment Label Dies.
I added foam tape to the back of the hippos and the sentiment and adhered them onto the card. I added some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer onto the beefeater’s hat and some Nuvo Crystal Glaze onto the crown to finish the card off. There’s a sweet policeman hippo in the set too, plus a few other London images – a telephone box and bus that would create some super cute scenes!
Thank you for joining me today, I appreciate you visiting. I will be back soon with another card for you. Happy crafting!
