Good morning everyone, hoping you all had a lovely weekend. Welcome to my new followers too and thanks for all your recent comments everyone. I'm still trying to catch up with all my comments after a very busy couple of weeks so will hopefully get there soon.
Today sees a new challenge for this month's French theme over at Make My Monday chosen by yours truly and this week it's to add a Fleur De Lys to your creation by stamping, die cuts, embossing etc, the choice is yours.
My creation has stamping and some die cuts from a now rather old Cuttlebug die set that I got just after I got the little green bug for my birthday a few years ago. I have no idea how I'd manage without it now either!
I made a background paper to start with by rubbing Tattered Rose Distress ink on card and then stamped on the fleur de lys design from an All Night Media clear stamp set with Bundled Sage DI.
I then made a border using my favourite scratch stamp by Hampton Arts with shades of pink and green DIs.
I stamped the rather sultry lady (Tip Your Hat by Rubber Stampede) with Smokey Gray VersaFine ink and coloured her with Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet and Bundled Sage DIs then inked around the edges with pink and cut the panel out.
I stamped the carte postale (Paper Artsy) and the Eiffel Tower (B Line Designs) with the grey ink then coloured them softly with a pale pink Promarker and cut them out.
I assembled the card as you see, adding fleur de lys die cuts of deep green card.
Hoping you have a lovely day and I'll be back tomorrow with the promised inking tutorial from my easel card for last Monday's challenge.
Hugs, Fliss xx
