Hey, all. Cheesy

So, this is one of the items I made for the Whedonverse swap I just participated in. It's a recreation of a Londinium poster using one of my favorite medium and drawing surface pairs.

Here's a picture I took before I sent out:

I wanted to get really crisp lines for the letters and the building silhouettes and experimented with ironing (lightly) freezer paper stencils onto the felt paper. It worked great.

Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
