Mixed Media Monday-Paris!!!

Chriss Rollins is asking for spare cards to be donated to help raise money for Daniel. Please click on the link and see if you can help at all. I have had such a fab day today. I have managed to have a tidy up and then spent most of the afternoon turning some long stashed cardstock into inked backgrounds.
After that I had a bit of a browse on the www to look for some more challenges I could have a go at and came across one called Mixed Media Monday where they have a challenge at the moment on the theme of Paris. It just so happens that I have recently bought this Paris Collage stamp by Clarity Stamps and with one of my new backgrounds........well that is the result up yonder^.
The blue background is made by spraying various inks by Sticky Fingers and Moonglow Sprays onto a sheet of plastic and swiping the card through the inks. I didn't add any water as I wanted intense colour rather than a wash. Once dry I cut a piece suitable for the size of the stamp and added the image using Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder. Further colour and white accents were added with H2O's.
The background on the black card is grunging with a white Brilliance ink pad and then overstamping using the main image and silver Brilliance.
Thanks for looking
