City Skyline

I'm back and I'm crafting again! My Mum has rallied brilliantly and was even well enough to go out and feed the ducks, so I'm back home and reunited with all my crafty bits.

I bought this city skyline stamp by Art Impressions to remind me of a trip to New York, although it could represent almost any major city, and here the twine and ribbon on the blue band give it a Union Jack feel so today it's representing London. It's a very versatile stamp and doesn't need a lot added to make a striking card. This time I've chosen masculine colours of dark blue and dark red to give the whole card a male feel, with the addition of ribbon, twine and a fabric brad.

I'm joining in with
