Darwen Tower Xmas card
For those of you who don't know - on the moors above Darwen there is a jubilee tower that was erected to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee - we all call it Darwen tower but its official title is the Jubilee Tower.tower.
I have an old wood mounted stamp of the tower - I am very lucky as my friend also has a smaller version so we can swap about!!
Anyway back to the card I stamped in slate grey adirondak and then cut out the oval - the stamp lends itself to an oval but the way the ground has been drawn. I brayered the background for the sky and added glitter for snow and on the castle ( though it doesn't show on the picture. These cards are going across the pond so I added the sentiment from Darwen. I stamped some holly in two opposite corners with Judikins sticky stuff - heated it up and added glitter. Two rows of ds tape across the middle and glitter.
I have kept the card flat to keep postage costs down.
