LTD - Architecture

The theme this week at Lots to do is Architecture. So many ways you can represent the idea from ancient monuments like stonehenge to modern landmarks like the Gerkin and every type of construction in between.

Photocopied a blueprint onto plain copier paper and ran it through the bigshot with the new TH embossing folder distressed brickwork. Worked Scattered straw, frayed burlap, rusty hinge and shabber shutters onto the paper. Using Tanda's Town Set stamped the sentiment onto the background stamped and embossed the houses onto card the the windows glossy accents, the roofs, chimmeys, doors, and steps a touch of sakura and the houses lightly coloured with barn door. An old key completes the card.

Allsorts are looking for embossing this week am entering this into their challenge as well.
