Paris Collage Card!!!

Hi there
Sorry I have been MIA for a couple of days. I have been spending some time with my daughter as she is on holiday from work and I have also started work on some new projects and stuff for the shop and of course we have just started opening on a Wednesday due to public!!! Had quite a busy day for our first opening.
In between all that I have been fiddling with the Paris card up yonder. I only started making a background really on glossy card with Adirondack inks and then I started adding stamped images and rubbing them back with steel wool (much kinder to card than sandpaper)adding more ink and images and then doodling a bit. The Eiffel tower shape started off life as a printed chipboard piece which got rubbed over, inked and stamped.
Stamps are a combination of Clarity, MSE and Royal and Langnickel (I think) once I get started I lose track of what I have used.
Anyway I hope you like it I have entered it for the Arty GirlZ Challenge HERE
I am away to sort out a bit more of the stuff on my computer to put onto cd's. I am a very untidy computerer and have things in the oddest!!!
Bye for now.


  1. like your look and you are right wire wool is kinder than sand paper but i also use different roughness in nail files this works too.
    the buffers are great too.
