Thanks Beth, once again for a very creative Monday challenge...it was fun to go way back there and find one in each of the three categories. Well, FUN until I realized I had misread TLC10 and did TLC11! So can I PLEASE have 2/3 credit? I promise I'll read between the lines next time!!! SC04 and CC09 complete my trio.
For those of you who saw my FS68 honoring peanutbee yesterday, you know about my lack of a clean room! Well, after hitting all the local sales this morning in honor of Memorial Day...I decided my studio needed an overhaul...so I cleaned and rearranged and repurposed the space before I would allow myself the technique challenge! Girlz, it FEELS great to have clean counters. And a card to post.
One of my finds today at 50% off was this very vintage set of clear stamps from Prima Marketing (all about Parisian life). I had to ink the Eiffel tower on sage shadow with VersaColor black and embossed with clear and midas platinum. I love the perspective of this image. I used the sentiment from the set and stamped in black and embossed in clear. It is on ruby red paper. My brocade mat is from MME 29th Street Market Bright "Together" united floral/Cool-ective blue paper. I matted the sentiment on the back side of the DP. Both are heavily distressed ( this was the TLC11 part Shabby Chic). I added a mustard metal photo turn and a piece of handdyed silk ribbon. I did alter the SC04 by moving my horizontal panel up alot...I just had to reveal those gorgeous arches!
Thanks for looking and I hope you all have had a HAPPY Day.

Susan how do you do it? You make the most fantastic shabby chic cards I have ever seen. I am sooo glad you misread it because we would not have a card like this in the gallery today. I think you find the most awesome stamps. Nice job on your 2/3's card.
