British Invasion from Artistic Outpost

Artistic Outpost is celebrating a British Invasion.
Artistic Outpost is releasing two new stamps sets, both with a London theme.  I am so thrilled with this theme, I can't even tell you.  It's my favorite city I've never been to.  But it's on the bucket list:)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From AO's Site:
Loverly London

Loverly London is a collection of vintage inspired imagery of our idealized London. This collection takes some liberties with "My Fair Lady", because we can't help but picture the gentleman in his "dinner jacket" and hat as Professor Higgins and the lovely lady as Eliza Doolittle.

London Underground
Now for a horse of a funkier color, London Underground, what we think are some of the coolest stamps featuring stylized collage elements. Have fun creating mixed media collages with all these elements. We can't wait to see what you create with the vintage underground sign and the Union Jack.
Both collections are right on trend with things happening in the media and home decor. So get on the "tube" with us, and let's all go U.K.!!!
If you spend $42 on rubber stamps you can save 20%. Simply use the code London at check out!

I so enjoyed coming up with samples using these stamps.  Here's a shadow box I created using some packaging from K&Co.   I used stamps from both sets on this.

If you'd like to see more samples from the London series, you can check out these talented ladies' blogs:   Gerrie Johnnic * Lisa Somerville * Judy Hayes * Lynn Stevens *  Barbara Washington * Stephanie Severin * Suzanne Czosek.

How loverly the shadow box is...I can just hear the musical in my head..."I've grown accustomed to her face...she almost makes the day begin...her smiles, her frowns, her ups, her downs...are second nature to me now"...Yes, I'm a geek!
