I can't believe that another fortnight has flown by and it's time for the next Craft-Room Challenge. The theme this time has been chosen by the lovely Debi and she has chosen Travel/Postcard.
I know I called my DT piece a postcard in the title but it's really a 9.5 inch by 7.5 inch canvas. I started by painting the canvas with a cream colour then adding a little bit of blue, then I stamped various images to do with Paris but my stamping kept going wrong and I kept adding more paint that mixed with the stamping ink until it became a horrid muddy background, fortunately I had a lot of images to cover it. The three main images are from the Gecko Galz Picture Perfect collage sheet, and all the other images were stamped and then coloured with vintage photo Distress ink. I attached some black lace to the sides of the canvas and attached some beaded ribbon to the middle image then I adhered all the images to the canvas and added some metal corners. When it was finished I decided that I wanted some touches of gold embossing so I applied some Versamark with a stencil brush to parts of the canvas and embossed with gold. I got a little bit heavy handed by the time I got to the bottom.
The Moulin Rouge stamps that I used are by Hampton Art and the Eiffel tower ticket is a Stampers Anonymous stamp.
