I belong to a group that swaps postcards ATCs and Tags once a month and this month the theme for the postcards is What I did this summer… Well as some of you may know I spent some considerable time down at my Mum’s this year and during that time I took my boys up to London along with my Sister in Law and Nephew. We had a great time at the Science Museum and the London Live event at Hyde Park and finished it off with a photo outside the gates of Buckingham Palace (with the promise to go back next year to do the tour) So we were pretty much “The Tourists” hence my postcard

Papermania Urban Stamp from Capsule collection DVD
Dusty Concord Distress Ink
Here is another ATC using the Urban Stamps from the Papermania Capsule Collection DVD, I just think they are great to work with as you can print them any size you like and then ink them up etc, you can change the colour of them in the program too so it looks like you have stamped them in different colour inks. The bird cage came from a bunch of die cuts that I got in my wonderful Christmas Cigar box that Chris sent me.
This was a bit of an experiment but I am fairly pleased with the results. I took one of the urban stamps from the Papermania Capsule Collection DVD and inked it up using distress inks, then I put some Anita’s 3d Glaze on it and let it dry. Once dry I shaped the doll in order to crack the glaze a little. The background came from the same DVD I think (got so many bits of paper lying around its hard to say!) I put the ink on my craft mat a spritzed it with water & dragged the card through it.
