Winter in Paris at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hello there my lovelies, we've got a new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time around our theme is 'Winter in Paris'. Our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher for Flonzcraft and of course the DT will be voting for the Top 3 too.

I've made a little scenic card for my DT project. I began by creating a background using a mask from Clarity and distress inks to create the sky and the skyline. I used Silver PanPastel to give the moon a bit of a shimmer and added some snow with a white Graph'It Shake pen. The sentiment and santa stamps are both from Flonzcraft, I've embossed the sentiment with Gold EP and added a little colour to Santa and the reindeer with Lyra pencils.

The lady is one of the fabulous flappers from Chocolate Baroque, I've coloured her with pencils, cut her out and added her with 3d foam pads. To finish off I've applied white texture paste and glitter around the edges of my scene and popped a little bow and a snowflake charm in the top corner.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Allsorts: ribbons and bows
Crafty Catz: Winter
Ooh La La: embossing
Southern Girls: Twine tape or ribbon
Sweet Stamps: anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today

  4. Adore this Claire and love the "pop" of colour on your project from the lady looking in to the scene. Lou x
