Paris Postcard


Don't you just love it when you actually manage to use up those bits that are lying around, I know I'm always full of good intentions, but then the bits just pile up. Had a little tidy up and came across these bits of card in my little 'spray booth' (its a big boots box really).   Golds, brass and pewter sprays amongst other things on the bottom layer and lots of Vintage Photo spray on the next layer. The main image is from Artistic Outposts Paris Exposition coloured with distress inks. My flower is papercraft clay coloured with distress inks.
I am entering this at:

Thanks for visiting, especially when time seems so short these days.

Very shabby chic Avril, bet it looks really lush with all that gold spray. Great use of some of the left over bits.
