London Calling

2012 is a great year to be English! The Queen is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee (marking 60 years on the Throne!) and London is hosting the 2012 Olympics!  I see a lot of Union Jacks in my future!

I love the new London 2012 stamps by Penny Black. I used two of them in this 5"x7" wall hanging. I got the idea for the Union Jack Heart from this post by Shelly Hickox. First, I placed an order for the London Underground stamp set from Artistic Outpost. But I wanted to get crafty immediately so I created my own Union Jack using Scor Tape and various colours of fine glitter.  I die cut the heart using a sizzix tipsy heart die. I then used her Glitter UTEE technique she demonstrated in this post on her blog.   I love how the heart turned out! I also love the Tim Holtz Film Strip Ribbon Tape I made to look like pictures a tourist would take around London. I got the idea from Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas 2009 Day 9.
