Keep Calm and Carry On!

This must be the phrase for 2012 and you can keep calm about just about everything from coffee to "other things" although I must say, if you drink loads of coffee how can you keep calm?? lolxx

Anyway the reason for the title is:-

All layers of the Tando Creative frame were joined together using a wet glue, the front was then coloured using distress inks and then overstamped before being spritzed with perfect pearls.  The base plate was covered with paper from the Portobello Road range, the Union Jack and banner are also from the same range.  All of the stamps used in this project are by Artistic Outpost and are the "London Underground" set must say this set has been used and used since I bought it a month ago.....The guard is also off one of the stamps.  The telephone box is the smaller one from the Tando Creative London selection......this was painted with acryllic paint and then using black and white pens detailing added back in.

TFL xx
