Bon Voyage!

So this week we visit the country of France ams as luck would have it I bought some steam punk papers from Kanban that featured some with the Tour de Eiffel on it! Now wasn't that good luck! Of course that also determined my direction of artistic travels as I decided to do something more akin to my card making rather than painting.

So some painting the base card first Todd a border, then added the paper. Distress inked the edges with Vintage Photo ink, and then started inking the corner with versamark and adding embossing powder. About four layers of mixed dark brown and gold later I'm happy with the texture added. Then a wrap of organza ribbon around.

Then I punched some bunting out of book print (henry V - shakespeare) using my stampin up petite pennants punch and layered them into a rosette and inked it again with the Vintage photo ink. Then added a button and another length of the ribbon.

Enjoy!

P.s. used Pixlomatic app to finish off the photos just cos I wanted to play!
