French Fancy !!!



Hi Everyone. Been having a problem with this post and my most recent one. Must have done something wrong......sorry if you visited and could not see images.

This is a piece I made to enter Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge - Studio 490 and The Artistic Stamper challenge- Ribbons and Lace.

I used the TH Postcard folder, which I embossed and then distressed with tumbled glass and Vintage photo. I then added lace all around.  The images are from WV Studio 490 range - Art rules and European Art. I stamped them and cut them out. They were also inked with various distress inks. I addedd some  chipbaord letters and a couple of flowers to complete the centre piece.  I placed the finished item on  brown card, placing some embossed corners on it just to add some detail.

I really enjoyed creating this piece. Hope you like it too.

Many thanks for visiting and viewing my posts.

Happy Crafting............Annie x

  6. Hi Annie,

    Wow, what a cool piece of work - love the woman with the sentiment tickets hat - sort of a reflection of the inspirational thoughts she is thinking. Super French elements and I always love that TH texture fade for the background. Great color palette too.
