Remember Paris...


Wanted to show you a card that I did for a lady on a group of mine...she needed some cheering up as she's going through a very serious illness.

Remember Paris


The way I made the card:
Background is a ink resist using ranger distress ink - the tea one.
The images used are ones that I found free online...
After attaching the images to the base of the card, I used my fingers to apply the same ink to distress the card and then attached the dragonfly sticker and the rhinestones to the edges of the post card image.  I then inked the edges of the card.

The effect I was looking for here was "Paris Grunge," sort of a take off on steampunk/grunge style...I like to call the effect diet steampunk/

Hope you enjoy!
