Pink Lips in Paris


Hello All....

This is me experimenting with a collage style card.....I love it when people do lots of stamping, and mix lots of images together...to me it always looks fab......but I am not that great at creating the look for myself so this is me having another bash...

I started being inspired by Mona's colour combo shown above....also I wanted to include....Paris somehow, as I have still not joined in Brenda's Travel themed challenge over at sir stampalot........ (I hope this fits!)

The main image is "Stampelglede - Maribel".... I have inked around the edges with "distress ink - spun sugar" and I have coloured the lips with "Copic Marker - RV06, Cerise"

The Paris Image is "The Montage Collection - Santa Rose" and the Script detail is "Hero Arts - Manuscript Background" both have been inked with "Memento - Rose Bud"

The Envelope stamp is "All Night Media"......I suppose the idea behind using this stamp was that if you were traveling around the world you would be sending letters home, and finally the flourish is a "Kanban" stamp.

To finish off I just added a little stitching.....and a few sequins....( I bought a big bag of them today from the £1 shop) BARGAIN!!!!!....................and well that's about it!!

This is my entry for:

Cupcakes Creations - cr84fn8
Sir Stampalot - Travel The World
Anything Goes - The Letter C (I have used the colour Cerise)
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
MAWTT - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking,
Hugs Juls
