Winter in Paris at FSC

Hello,  it's time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping  and this time it's Winter in  Paris.  We have Flonzcraft as our sponsor who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
I've used a Sheena Douglas stencil for my background and coloured the background with Distress Inks.
My lady and lamppost are both Clarity stamps and the lady has an extra layer to keep her warm - I paper pieced her coat which had been clear embossed to give a bit more detail.  For the wintry look to Paris I added some  Flower soft  in Polar White and of course my Eiffel Tower had to have the night time sparkle with some fine glitter, which doesn't show in the photo.

It would be lovely if you could join us for this challenge, but remember, we are a stamping challenge so must see the stamping as your focal point and if you need some inspiration, the rest of the DT have come up with some amazing ideas, so please pop over to the main blog.

I am entering this at:
  That's Crafty - Tag You're It
  Natalie and Amy's  - WinterScenes
  Crafty Catz - Winter

That's all from me, apart from to say, if you popped in earlier for the details and found a blank page....somehow, I seen to have lost the last week - I thought the challenge was next Sunday, silly me!

Have a great day,
Avril xx

This sure looks like a cold wintery night in Paris! I like how the background is a little blurred and the lady sharp, just like a photo. Your tag looks fantastic
