Project 459: A London thank you

A colleague just bought a house and had to ask a massive favour of another colleague in order to make it work. She wanted a thank you that was deeply personal and after talking to her about it we decided a watercolour London scene was exactly the right note.

I started by heat embossing the Tim Holtz stamp from Claire on watercolour paper. Then I used Distress Inks and a water brush to get a grey and blue sky effect. I added a Mama Elephant thank you set in the corner that would offset the skyline and hold its own.

I decided to triple mount it for a touch more elegance. Really happy with it and my colleague loves it too. A lovely little art project.


  1. Oh gosh, this is beautiful, such a great use of that stamp. I love the triple mount and that sentiment is perfect for this card. Cx

  2. Hi this is stunning. I am not surprised that your colleague loves it. Take care. Hugs Jackie
