Paris Exposition

Hello everyone on another rather windy day. Hoping those of you in the USA affected by the tornadoes are all OK and managing to cope.
I have a card to share today that I made for the last workshop I taught and haven't yet had a chance to show you. I succumbed a little while ago to some more Artistic Outpost stamps as I find them so versatile and here's what I made with the Paris Exposition set.


I made a background panel by inking with Scattered Straw, Wild honey and Vintage photo Distress inks then stamped on some of the images from the set together with a splatter stamp using Archival coffee ink.
I stamped the men collage and the lady separately on white card, added colour with Distress inks and Promarkers plus a small amount of splatter on the collage image then cut these out and added them with foam tape.

Challenges for my card:
Art With No Boundaries - Anything Goes
The Craft Room Challenge - Ink It (having almost permanently inky fingers how could I resist!)

Bye for now,
Fliss xx
