Sunday Stampers - Week 20 - Lost In France

Hello everyone,

Thank you to you all for joining in last week's challenge and I just loved all those little dog creations you all made :O))

This week the challenge theme is France. As usual, the challenge is to use stamps, inks, paints, mixed media etc to make your creation, be it a card, ATC, Scrapbook page...the choice is yours.



For my attempt, I used a large piece of mountboard which is approx 12" x 10" and made a little collage with some of the new heavenly papers from Costco - many thanks to Andrea for my early birthday pressie :O)) and I used a collection of stamps from Tim Holtz, PaperBag Studios & Studio G. I also used Distress Inks, VersaFine ink and some 7Gypsies waz seals. I added a touch of Grungeboard to add a little flourish to the project and then distressed the edges using a metal file.

Have lots of fun getting inky and messy and please remember to add a link, to this post, to the place you are showing your work of art :O))

Thanks

Hels x
