Paris scene card

Hi, friends! I am here today to share with you my Paris scene card. I started with a piece of manila cardstock and my distress stain sprays in brown tones. When it dried I stamped the lady (Tim Holtz's stamp) and made a mask. I put the mask over the lady stamp and then stamped the cityscape Paris image. The lady image was coloured with my Cracked pistachio and Victorian velvet distress stain sprays (I used my water brush). I used my 2" circle punch to make a stencil and then I applied Mustard seed DI through that handmade stencil to achive a kind of light shadow from the lamp or the Moon :) The lamp post (Tim's Bigz die) was cut out from the black cardstock as well as the bicycle (Cottage cutz die). I used one of Tim's stamps (birds) to add more details to the scene. Also, I used my black Archival ink for stamping and for distressing the edges I used two of my DI's Brushed corduroy and Black soot. I used my Big chat stickers for a quote.

  8. Ahhh jaw dropped on the floor and can't pick it up again!! This is for a couple of reasons, firstly this is such a beautiful and stunning scene, very french and very chic! Secondly, I have just received the skyline stamps and haven't found time to use them yet and I have the runway set and have barely touched them, and I'm sooo jealous. I want to run and play after seeing your gorgeous card...
