Doing the Docrafts - Big Ben

Happy New Year to everyone who stumbles upon this page and especially to my tiny, exclusive group of followers ( thank you so much for your kindness!!) .

Docrafts have brought out a new range of 'British' themed stuff and I bought a stamp set called Papermania Portobello Road.  I thought the Big Ben stamp would be good for New Years cards.Unfortunately the clock hands aren't pointing to midnight. However,  in the UK Big Ben is so much an icon for New Year, I hope that that this will be overlooked!

I masked off Big Ben and stamped Fiskars circles to be reminiscent of fireworks.

I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:
Come and Get it  Happy New Year
Crafty Boots Challenges Celebrations
C.R.A.F.T Challenge New Year

Here are a couple of other stamps - a bus and a camper van - from the same stamp set, used on a calendar I made for my mother - outlaw. They came over for New Years Eve and when I gave it to her the glue was still wet!

I like the idea of the circles behind it, that was a great way to put a background in as well as have it work. Thanks for playing at Come and Get It
