Destination London


London is certainly the place to be at the moment!  We're having a few days there soon and I'm looking forward to visiting Greenwich, a part of London I've never been to.  Our preferred mode of travel will be the Tube, not taxis!

I originally intended to add some red and blue in the background, but then decided I liked it monochrome, apart from the yellow light on top of the taxi.

The theme at One Layer Wednesday this week, hosted by Cheryl, is transportation;
The theme at Lawnscaping is



and the theme at A Blog Named Hero is Freestyle.


Taxi (stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and coloured with Black Soot Distress Ink), Big Ben and phone box (stamped in Versafine Smokey Gray) are from Papermania's Portobello Road Vintage set PMA907126.
Destination is from Clear Choice Stamps MIN-CCS103, stamped in Versafine Black Onyx.
