TARDIS in London


Hello Sweetie!

Firstly, my family are Dr Who fans.  Secondly I about cried with joy when I found this stamp on VivaLasVegastamps. Love! Love! Love!  Did I mention I love this stamp - great size, great subject!  When I saw the police box stamp I knew I had to make it fly and that I already had a London background stamp to ground it.  From there it was just some assembly required and to be honest this is one of those times when the image in my brain actually turned out on the card itself.  SQUEEEE!

However, that said that doesn't mean there aren't things I wouldn't do differently.  I versamarked the mat but you can't really tell, not even in real life, so if I do that again I will emboss it too.  And maybe add a few more gears/watches to the sky.  Debating whether I would versamark or really make them stand out. Hmm.
