Totally Papercrafts ,,,, Springtime Challenge

Good Morning :-) hope you are all fit and well and looking forward to a nice weekend of crafting !! :-)

This week it is Scoopy’s turn to host the challenge and she chose


Well ,, for me the next words are ,,,,, In Paris !!

We are sponsored by Kenny K and one lucky entrant can win some fab Digi Images :-)

For my card I just HAD to use my new Penny Black stamp set , J’aime Paris. I stamped the figures, then masked them to stamp the Tour Eiffel behind them I then coloured the image with Copics and decoupaged the bouquet. I also used my new Unity Postcard stamp. Both of these were inked around the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink . I have had these papers FOREVER and can’t remember the brand ?? the flowers are Prima and I added a hear charm and a few Kaiser Crafts pearls to finish

Thanks for looking Smile The DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so please pop over to the challenge blog to see them :-)
