Keep Calm and Carry On

What fun playing with domino game pieces and the new stamps
from Artistic Outpost. London Underground and Loverly London
Who says you need paper to stamp. For my little hanging
I used a tin, some game pieces and some charms.

What an amazing piece truly inspirational ! I'm lucky I can find descent paper to stamp here in Greece let alone Dominoes. This is an awesome project and your stamping is sensational.

This might sound silly, considering I live in the U.K. but I am not an Anglophile. Saying that, do I love this hanging, Yes I Do!!!
Great use of game pieces and brings more to the artwork than if it had been paper.
Inspirational.

Firstly, thanks for visiting my blog yesterday and for all those lovely comments!! I'm sorry that I haven't visited you in a while.
