DT Project 2 Darkroom Door London Plate 2 by Astrid

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Snazzys DT blog.

I’m sure that by now you will know how much the DT love the Darkroom Door London stamp sets. If you are a regular here you will have seen some amazing projects already over the last few weeks. Remember, you can win the set of your choice by leaving a comment on Gillian’s first post here
For my second project, using the stamps I decided to do a kind of mini lay out that could either stand by itself or be used as a cover for a London travel journal.
I started by stamping the Westminster Abbey stamp first on a piece of smooth white card and then on a mask created from a post it note. As you can see I also punched out a circle mask as I wanted it to look as if the moon was rising behind the building.

Next I sponged Weathered Wood Distress Ink all around it and then removed the masks.

I then used a water brush and some more of the distress ink to add some shadows and just a bit of an indication of buildings in the distance. I then used this stamped piece as the focus of my lay out for which I used my favourite Prima Almanac Collection, both papers and elements. We show cased these a couple of months ago and they belong to my all time favourites!!

The final stage was to embellish the lay out still with some roses and black pearl swirls from my stash.

Well I hope you enjoyed my second project. I just know you will all want to come back next Monday when the wonderful Hels Sheridan will show us her first post for Snazzys
