Capital City at FSC
The theme this fortnight over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is 'Any Capital City'. If you follow the blog, you will have seen the sneak peaks posted this last week - did you guess the challenge?
(When Blogger decided to do his 'thing' with followers, FSC lost all its followers because its a Wordpress blog - so you may need to follow with Mr. Linky - thay way you will be kept up to date with Winners and Top 3 as well as the 'Spotlight' entries and the sneak peaks)
This challenge can of course be your own capital, but unfortunately, I didn't have any London stamps, although there are some fabulous ones available, so I opted for Paris. There are some fabulous and very original creations from the rest of the DT, so please pop over to the blog and take a look. We are as usual sponsored by Marina of Cottage Crafts with a €7 Voucher to spend in the shop.
For my card I started off by inking the background with Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar Bundled Sage and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks. I then stamped Tim Holtz Papillion Script in Worn Lipstick, the postmark, Paris and flourish were Stamped in Black Memento. The main image is Stampendous, again sponged with the same DI's, plus Tumbled Glass. Flowers were colours with Worn Lipstick DI.
I am entering this card in:

Thats it for now, and I hope you all enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend.
