Paris in the Spring

Hi everyone!  I hope that you are enjoying warmer weather in your neck of the woods.  I think that spring has finally arrived in Buffalo where I live and I am so thankful!  Anyway, I have a card to share with you using Sweet N Sassy Stamps Parisian Postcard today.

I showed the ladies at a card class I taught a couple months ago how to create a collage type look and about 2nd generation stamping.  This is the card that they made.  The main image was stamped with black versa fine ink (which I really like for intricate images and silhouettes) and then the smaller images around the panel were stamped on scratch paper first with gray versa fine and then stamped on my image panel (second generation stamping technique).  The papers are from My Minds Eye and the edges were distressed a bit with scissors.

Here is the stamp set that I used on my card:

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Be sure to check back tomorrow for the April release blog hop.  The DT has some wonderful samples to share with you and there will be a chance for you to win some Sweet N Sassy goodies.  See you then!
