The challenge over at Less is More this week is One Layer, and for once I’ve got myself organised in enough time to take part! This card is for a French friend whose birthday falls this week, and although she isn’t from Paris I know she loves it there so it seemed fitting to try out my recent purchase of some Stampin’ Up! stamps with a French theme.
This was my third attempt! The greeting was stamped using individual letter stamps, and my first attempt saw me mis-spelling “Bon” – you’d never guess I got a B in A-level French, would you? My excuse is the number of years since I took it . . . .
There was lots of masking and inking using my new Hero Arts Blackboard shadow inks which arrived yesterday, before sponging some Distress Spun Sugar over the ticket. Voila!
