Paris. Ooh, la, la!

Sunday again already.

A picture for two challenges - I cannot call it a card as one of the challenges was for anything but a card!

Crafty Creations #126 - Paris theme with anything than a card
Sentimental Sundays #63 - Inky Fingers

The inky fingers aspect is more unusual stamping techniques.

Therefore I used a resist technique using Versamark ink on glossy white card. When it was dry, a brayer was used to apply ink from the Spice Big ' Juicy pad. The two stamps used - the Sacre Couer and The sentiment are stamps from Elusive Images (now Chocolate Baroque).

When dry, the two images of the Eiffel Tower and the "Ooh La La" were added in Brown Stazon.

This was then mounted on a canvas, to make a piece of wall art, which had previously been painted with peacock emulsion paint.
