Dreaming of Paris

I was just having a little bit of a play with a few different ideas with this card :)

I've been itching to ink up my Eifell Tower stamp for a while, its one of those stamps that have only seen ink once or twice before (very BAD!) and I recently bought little Heartbreaker Edwin and I thought they would work well together.  The papers are Sassafrass Lass "Indie Girl" and have been sitting on my desk waiting for attention since before Christmas (very, very BAD!).  The hot air balloons are one of my favourite accessory stamps that I ink up and fill in gaps when I find the opportunity.

The distressed look of my card is something I don't do very often but these gorgeous papers and lace were just crying out for it. The paper flower behind the rose is a Magnolia Doo Hickey die "Peony Petals". The Eifell Tower is actually stamped in "Antique Linen" distress ink, then stamped over in versamark and embossed with clear powder to make it glossy. The crochet doily was a pressie from a friend and the lace is Kaisercraft.

Everything is coloured in Copics and machine stitched for fun :)
