Paris........

Morning peeps I'm feelin' a smidge guilty for posting soooooo many cute designs over the past few days and there are still more to come, so I thought I'd show you a card I did make a while back at a class I did with Linda Elbourne at LB Crafts using B Line stamps, I must get round to doing some more vintage styles as I'm getting withdrawal symptoms and I so love doing them. The flowers and face were coloured with Prisma pencils and then glossy accents put on the top to give a porcelain finish, the background was created using distress inks and stamps, the leaf stamp is using gold dabber paint and the background of the lady had a liberal coating of Rock Candy......so lots of bling going on , the Eiffel Tower was embossed and then Viva Inka gold rubbed over to had a lustre to the background of the image sorry the photo isnt that good


Challenges
Dream Valley......Distressing.
Simon Says Stamp and show......a Tim Holtz technique (stamping with gold dabber and distressing).

Expectin' my grandson any moment  so we're in for another
fun filled day as well as being exhausted by the end of it
hugs and smiles to you all

Hey Custard Lover. Sorry for my lack of visits, things have been a little difficult the past few days.
This is another one of your gorgeous makes, that I admire and could never pull off myself. Lovely. xxx

Absolutely gorgeous card Daniele. Love the faux porcelain effect and the gold dabber work.
I'm a fan of B Line stamps too and have loads.
