Feelin' Romantic

I know Christmas is approaching, and yes I feel festive about it even in July..... but sometimes you're just hit by the love bug... and you gotta express yourself. I LOVE this color challenge from Pals Paper Arts I was thinking I might try a Xmas style card..... but I did Paris instead!

I started off with Very Vanilla cardstock, and stamped En Francais in Daffodil Delight. Then I used the " craft ink anything" technique and stamped the Eiffle Tower in Basic Grey and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then with just the versa mark, I stamped the medallion ( all stamps from the Artistic Etching Set ) and clear embossed as well. Then with my brayer, I went over all the images with more Daffodil Delight, and then sponged the bottom with the Poppy Parade. Sorta like a backwards sunset.... but pretty none the less.

Anyhoo..... all supplies are Stampin' Up! And available for sale from my website ( hit the link on the sidebar )

Enjoy mes amis!!
- if you can imagine, you can create it.
