Mary Kings Close The Underground City.

This was a must do while we were in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh seems to be made up from lots of little closes (small lanes leading to houses) and Mary King's was built on (cheaper than demolishing and rebuilding) - these streets and homes were only re-discovered after 400 years of being underground!
There was a room where you can see the 'potato' stamping on the walls of people's homes... they couldn't afford wall paper or anything like that so had to decorate their own walls. I used a Brilliance DewDrop ink pad to get this effect on my background. 

We had our photograph taken with a thermal camera while we were underground (I printed it in black and white), added a brochure with Mary King's daughter (she was our tour guide) and a postcard.
