Well, who'd have thunk! I could have sworn I'd be visiting Paris this morning with all my French/Paris themed stamps. But I took a stroll around some of the other cities, starting with those I've been to, and realised that I could go somewhere else and push myself out of my usual itinerary :D.
Athens - lots of photos, but hard to do anything with stamps.
London - got a red phone box stamp, London might be calling later on in the day.
Dublin - hey, what's that! Dublin's not on the list. I could have done a lovely Georgian doorway with a fanlight over it.
Barcelona - I just loved Parc Guell when we were in Barcelona for a wedding a few years ago, and am delighted to have found a park in Paris that reminds me somewhat of it. You can see a Gaudi-style mug we bought there in the background of my photo :D. I used the Faux Mosaic technique. Go me - I even found the mosaic stamp I made last year in less than five minutes of looking ;-). Only difference is I used blue rather than black, I wanted to keep a brighter feel to the card.
I wasn't sure whether to add Liquid Pearls in the bright colours to the scallops, opinions welcome.
5 3/4" base. Sun sponged using the MFT sun die, sentiment is also MFT.
Anita's lizard stamped on card and coloured with pencils. Mistake - I forgot they'd act as resist but since this was already take 2, I'm going with it.

I think the resist actually works perfectly ... it helps the color really pop ... and I love the bright sunshine (as I sit here in dreary rain) ... awesome inspired card ... thanks for taking us traveling with you.

Sabrina, this is fabulous! Love the faux mosaic with your lizard. Doesn't need another thing including liquid pearls! Will check back later to see if London called after all. Love your birthday card, too! Thanks!
