Parlez Vous Francais???

...Moi? Non! LOL Actually, I can order a ham and cheese sandwich and a coffee with milk in French, sadly that is the limit of my capabilities...call it too much dossing about in school... Anyways.. I am not here to talk about my linguisticly challenged brain... I am here to show you this card I made using some fabby Paris themed stamps by TJ Designs, which are available from The Stamp Attic.




The card is actually a postcard on a card... that was the plan when I set off with it this morning anyway as the theme for the Lots To Do Challenge this week is Mail Art. I used some cream textured cardstock and covered it with a combo of Ginger, Rust and Butterscotch Adirondack Dye inks - spritzed the whole lot with water to make it more blended and then added on some of the stamps. I made a little postage stamp using one of the rubberstamps... stuck this to the card and then used another of the stamps as a "frank" - so it looks like it has been posted. The little wax seal is by 7Gypsies - I have had these for literally yonks... and hardly ever used them! I emphasized the seal with a bit of gold Krylon pen and then added on some brads and lacey trim.




The stamps and inks etc are available from The Stamp Attic... I have some Italy ones to play with now too.. so I am off to get inkier and even messier now. I woke up feeling heaps better this morning, thank heavens cos this week has been pretty yuk. I still need to get the room sorted... I know, those four last boxes are not unpacking themselves you know... Grim is going to add some more shelves for me so I have more storage space... that will be tomorrow hopefully so I should be all sorted by ... er... well, soon! Thanks for looking - don't forget there is a new Sunday Stamper theme tomorrow morning... TTFN... or should I say.. Au Revoir! LOL

I love mail art. I think it's really cool and collect all sorts of papers and such but have never used any. This is gorgeous! Need to dig some out. So glad you're feeling better! xxD

Ma chere Hels, c'est tres bon. La tour Eifel est grande.
Ha ha, not a clue what I have written, neither did my French teacher. I'm quite ashamed I can't speak, or write, the lingo considering I took it for 5 years at school!!! Still my Latin was worse - I got 11/110 in my last exam!!!!!
Luv Joanne xx
