Welcome to NYC...
So I am in London until 18th Apr..doing a whirlwind family tour and working in the London office.
Because I am here this week, I thought today's card was topical.
One of my colleagues recently moved to the US, so now there are a few of us in the NYC office, which is nice. She manages myself and another girl I work with and we thought that we would make her a personal card from us.
Natasha had this idea that the card should have NYC and London on it and that was her brief... I realised that this would be a great opportunity to break out my old fave Penny Black London and NYC stamps.
I decided to use a much bigger card blank, because the stamps are quite large and I needed to have some space between the two images.
I kept the colouring minimal, because it felt like subtle pops of colour would work much better. I felt quite pleased with the fact that the lady in both has a red coat..like she really did pop from one city to the other!
I dug out my alphabet stamps and stamped the farewell and welcome using these.
I'm pretty pleased with how it came out and the recipient loved it too!
