A Bit Of Ooh La La!

Good morning folks, I'm here today to show you the card I made as the midweek motivation for this week's challenge over at Make My Monday with the theme of French Feminine/Romance.

I wanted to use this very elegant showgirl by Kanban as she looks rather French to me with a definite hint of ooh la la! I stamped her with Memories artprint brown then coloured the image with Promarkers and watercolour pencils and die cut the panel.
The background paper which came from my experiment box uses Vintage photo Distress ink with the vaseline resist technique and gives a lovely shabby chic effect.
I made a border using corrugated card recycled from a takeaway coffee cup holder which I painted with acrylics and then sprinkled with tarnished gold embossing powder and heated to melt.
The fleur de lys embellishment was made by stamping the image and embossing with Frantage aged green embossing enamel then cut it out.
I finished off with some text from the Kanban set stamped with the brown ink.

Have a good day.
Hugs, Fliss xx
