French Script for House Of Cards

      We have a new challenge over at House Of Cards, our theme this month is to Use Script and/or Colours from our photo prompt.
     I have a lovely SU french script stamp that goes perfectly with an Eiffel Tower stamp and die by Sizzix, so all I had to do was tie in the colours and I was away.
     The script is stamped in brown on to white card, then it's coloured with Distress Ink Bundled Sage and mounted on a dark green layer on to a cream card blank.
     The Eiffel Tower is also stamped in brown but clear embossed and cut with the matching die from the set. This is mounted on foam pads over the layers rather than on them.
     To bring in the pinks I chose to stamp and emboss some Heartfelt Creation flowers, embossed in gold and coloured with Koi watercolour pens. There's a tiny yellow gem in the centre of each flower which was added after they were stuck on to the card.
     The balloons are from a set of tiny stamps I found in a bargain shop, they are stamped in brown, clear embossed and then coloured with the same pens. They have some shape in them after working them on a foam board with a ball tool, each one is stuck on with a tiny foam pad.
     'Paris' is in the same Sizzix stamp set but this time I have used a ticket die to cut it out instead of the matching shape. It's stamped in brown on cream card, clear embossed and aged with DI Old Paper and a crackle stamp, coloured green, them mounted on foam pads. There is a tiny Fleur De Lis die cut in gold satin mirri in the top right corner just to finish it off.
     Please come over to House Of Cards and join in the challenge, we have lots of inspiration to show you aswell.
