Tribute to the 2012 Olympics
This card was stamped with stamps from Paper Wings Productions, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. First off, I stamped the background with the Writings Background stamp that is the postcard, twice on my piece of coral cardstock. Next, I stamped the Tower and the word "London" from the London Clear Set. Then on a separate sheet of white stock I stamped the Papier Family and dressed them in their USA colors (even the funny beannie hat). Lastly, I punched out the five rings for the Olympic Rings and colored them with my copic markers. I then added a little USA banner on a toothpick and matted the whole thing on a black cardstock, before mounting it on a base red card.
I stayed up way too late last night watching the opening ceremonies, but luckily while watching I finished my card. I wish the best of luck to all the athletes participating in the games, at least we will have something different to watch on TV for the next week! Keep Creating!
