London Buses



,,,,,,,,,,you wait for ages then three come along at once :) ! 

Hi everyone, hope you've had a lovely Saturday. A Penny Black card to share today with lots of  the PB animals in a London Red Bus. I love all the London themed stamps in this PB release and hope to collect them all :).

I've coloured the bus with distress and water colour markers and used paper and embellishments by Papermania on a kraft base card. I stamped the bus three times and cut parts of the front out so that I could make it 3d and I've added a bit of doodling around the windows..

I'm entering the card into the Penny Black Saturday challenge where this week the theme is red, white and blue.

Enjoy your evening :)

Oh my goodness - this is the cutest image I believe I have ever seen - I have just got to find it. Chris, you are so talented - I only wish you could send me some talent over the pond. I love this card and the way you have decorated it - well what can I say but perfection and fun. Long live the Queen!!

Hi Chris! I am in your blog :-)! I love how you used these stamps. I have only ever made one card '3D' and loved it but don't have the patience to stamp and cut multiple times. The bus looks amazing and no wonder...you put a lot of effort into this card. Have you started on the telephone box one? Have a wonderful week!

Lisa said...

This is amazing! Your blog is fabulous, been enjoying looking around at your creations. You are very talented!

Hanna said...
