Texture It - London Style - Bloggers Challenge

The theme this week at Lisa's Bloggers Challenge is "texturize it".  Altho it took me a few days to finish it, I'm really happy with my framed art.  I used 2 of the Artistic Outpost London sets....London Underground and Loverly London.



This is a 5x5 frame, gold metal is run thru the Big Shot using a Ten Seconds Studio Plate and then sanded.  There is a 2x2 raised block under the image, covered with a piece from an old book; then I stamped on a piece of acrylic.

Hope you enjoy my project as much as I do!  hugz...
