Un Americain en Paris
I got my inspiration for this card from the
1951 Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron film An American in Paris (one of my all time favorites). I used the template off of Splitcoast, and colors that are both American and French. The sponge technique was great and instead of a Parchment look I wanted to add a touch blue to the stamps so that they were Red White and Blue. In all I wanted a vintage look something that felt like it came from the same era of the movie.
