This is my tribute to Paris. 

http://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/p2834/Sherri_Baldy_%22PARIS%22_My_Besties_digi_stamp

I used a 12 x 5.8 inch piece of red card stock.  I picked red for romance, I then cut a piece of white card stock to fit on the front of my card allowing to show the red around the edge.

Place your white card stock, on a scrap of paper and using back ground stamps, stamp a few back ground stamps.  I used Kazzercraft stamps and Kazzaz stamps, I tried to pick stamps which had a french influence.  I sponged around the card with real red ink, from Stampin up.  I used the Paris image available free from the Besti Shop.   I added buttons and bling for colour.  I used red lace and a red flower from Lincraft.  I coloured the image with Tim Holts pens and water colour Pencils.

    1. I have been playing with my stamps in this one, trying to pick out Paris ones, so much fun. Learning to colour red with the Tim Holt Pens and use water colour pencils on top of the red. Thank you for your encouragement. Karen
