Viva La France


Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week they have a theme of Inspiration Francaise. I cut a piece of white card into a postcard sized piece (6" x 4").  Stamped the main CI image in black stazon, masked it off and used PA and TH stamps for the background.  I then stamped the Eiffel Tower image again in black stazon.  I edged the postcard with black stazon too!!  I took the milled lavender and dusty concord distress ink markers and slightly tinted the flowers.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
