Lost in France - SS Week 20


Well what lovely weather we have today, the sun is out and I've been crafting :-)

This card I made for the Hels Sunday Stampers Challenge "This week the challenge theme is France. As usual, the challenge is to use stamps, inks, paints, mixed media etc to make your creation, be it a card, ATC, Scrapbook page...the choice is yours".

I used one of my new Tuscan Rose stamps and stamped using black versafine ink onto white card. I then coloured the image using distress inks and cut n dry foam. I stamped the word PARIS again and cut it out and covered it with 3d gloss. I then stamped the quote, which again is a Tuscan Rose stamp and coloured it using distress ink. I then mounted the stamped images onto gold mirror card. I used a piece of scrapbook paper, which I edged with gold ink and then mounted it onto the white card. I added the two stamped images and then used a large gold brad to attach a prima artful collage flower to the card.

As this weeks challenge on Daring Cardmakers is to use a quote on your card, then hopefully this card will qualify for that challenge also :-)

Also, this weeks challenge on My Time To Craft is to use brads or eyelets on your card, so I'm going to sneek this one in :-)
