London Calling

As soon as I saw the challenge , "Things are looking Grimm", at Corrosive Challenges, I knew I'd be taking part. I had loads of ideas but I soon got making this card - Dick Whittington, off to London to seek his fortune.

The boy is from a My Craft Studio Cd - I cut him out, coloured him with Promarkers and stuck him onto the background with dimensional pads. The drawing of medieval London was found on the internet and the cat is a Craft Stamper freebie. Okay, so I've mixed my eras a bit but - hey- this is a fairy tale!

As well as Corrosive Challenges, I'd like to enter this for:
Crafting When We Can One for the boys
Poodle's Parlour Anything Goes
I love Promarkers Anything Goes

Darling card! What a lovely scene you created! I wasn't familiar with the story (thank goodness for google, right?! lol), but it's a very creative take on the theme! And I'm pleased to see someone excited about it! :) Thanks for joining us at The Corrosive Challenge!

Great card Marina, love the distressed, sepia for the background against your coloured image, it really makes the image pop.
