For now my set is just something I've wanted to do for a several years and the idea of pairs seemed the perfect time to do it.
This card celebrates 2 of my favourite cities London and Paris and their two marvellous landmarks. The London Eye this is a Stamping' up stamp, in blue Stayzon. The Eiffel Tower in grey stayzon is from a long cherished but never used polymer set. The alphabet stamps were from Trimline (I think) years ago and cost just £1, they are great so long as you do not want perfectly lined up and straight words. The colouring is all felt tip, you cannot use solvent based pens with solvent based inks unless you want a blurred/muddy effect. The hardest thing to do was drawing the clubs but these are at least the right shape for all their variety.
This 2nd card is a fantasy city, part of an Addicted to Stamps plate. The buildings remind me of parts of Italy where buildings are brightly coloured and decorated outside. Trompe-l'oeil techniques are employed with very dramatic and realistic effect. Being southern Italy the skies are generally wall to wall blue. Coloured again with felt pens a bright and cheerful effect was easy peasy.
