Destination London

Hello there, having lived in London all my life (so far!), this stamp from Hero Arts spoke to me. There is not just London though, there are a huge variety of different locations available. They are wooden stamps, so stamp beautifully. 
For my card, I started off by stamping the Destination London stamp on to a piece of watercolour paper with Versafine ink. I then added black embossing powder and heat set. I took three shades of Distress Ink and blended these over. I took my Distress Sprayer and spritzed water over it. This was heat set and then I added Tumbled Glass over the top so that the water drops are now blue. The panel was then cut using a die from the Nesting Tag Infinity Dies collection.
I took the Nesting Hearts Infinity dies, layered these up and embossed them in to a piece of Snow Layering Paper. The paper was adhered to a black A2 card base with ATG. The tag was then added with foam tape. To finish off, I took a piece of hemp cord and coloured it black using a Copic Marker. Once dry, I tied this in to a bow and added it to the tag with Multi Medium Matte.

I have embossed dies a lot in the past but I had never done it with nesting dies. I saw Jennifer McGuire do it a little while ago and loved the look. Of course, I had to have a go myself! Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great day!
