London Elements

The August referral program for Artistic Outpost is ANYTHING GOES, that's right you can choose your own theme using any of the fabulous Artistic Outpost images and you can enter as many times as you like.

I decided to use images that I have not yet inked from the London Elements plate, perfect this time around considering those of us in the UK are celebrating the Olympics.
I covered my tag with some Portobello Road papers from Papermania, sponging the edges with fired brick Distress Ink. I then added a union jack door knob to the top, which gives fabulous dimension.
I added the clock image from the London Elements plate to a bottle cap, sponging the edges with fired brick ink and adding game spinners for the hands.  I also coloured the bottle cap with denim alcohol ink, adding LONDON from the Loverly London plate to the top of the cap for dimension, colouring with faded jeans Distress Ink. I added the fabulous pigeon image to the top of my clock piece. I stamped the LOOK RIGHT hand with black archival ink, sponging with a little faded jeans ink and adding a Union Jack circular embellishment to the finger.
I have been collecting jewellery pieces and using them for embellishments and the mini telephone box was perfect for this piece, to echo the iconic red telephone boxes that I stamped with vermillion archival ink.
I stamped the welcome sign onto white card, coloured with faded jeans ink, adding a metal crown to echo the crown on the right hand side on the Portobello Road paper.

Please link your creations HERE for your chance to win a fabulous prize.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
