Paris in the springtime........

Over at Out of a Hat creations, the design team have set the challenge of A Postcard from France........welcome to my interpretation of that!!  I used the new Distress Paints to create my background, I swished broken china, mustard seed, pickled raspberry & spun sugar onto my craft mat then spritzed with water & wooshed my cardstock through it, dried with heat tool, then added more water & heated again, repeating this process this I got the desired effect.  Using Clarity stamps & archival ink I stamped my images & edged my card with chipped sapphire distress ink.

I thought I'd also share this topper which I made today also.......still to be added to a card, it also has the Paris theme.  My friend Jane bought this stamp for me at the weekend, so I thought I'd use it to make a thank you card for her!!!

I will post a picture of the completed card later too........
Thanks for visiting - hope to see you again soon!!
Happy Crafting
