Winter in Paris

  Hi everyone!

I am here today with the latest challenge from Fashionable Stamping Challenges

and the subject this month is

...Winter in Paris 

As we are getting closer to Christmas I decided to give this card a festive twist...

To make sure that I kept the focus on Paris I, of course, used that most iconic image - the Eiffel tower....

To make the card I covered the craft mat with Black Soot DI and Iced Spruce and Picket Fence DP. I then spritzed with water and swirled the card through they inky paint pool and dried the card.

I then used a Flonzcraft Christmas script stamp on the background using Pumice Stone DI

I stamped the 'Christmas Cheer' message and the picture of the Eiffel tower in Jet Black archival ink and cut and matted these images with leftover painted card. I then did a quick spritz with Decoart Media white shimmer mister

I then got together a selection of die cut holly leaves and branches. I painted the holly leaves with Decoart Media Avrylic paint in Phthalo Green-Yellow then covered them with Liquid Glass to give a shine. 

I covered the branches with Walnut Stain and Gathered Twigs DI. I dabbed them with glue and covered them with Rock Candy Distress Glitter

An ivory rose was brushed with glue and sprinkled with Rock Candy Distress Glitter

I added some crystal and pearl beads and also some ivory lace

Enter this challenge and
you could be the winner of $20 to spend at Flonzcraft Stamps!

Happy Crafting!
