Petite Paris

I don't know what I was thinking when I started out on this little drawing adventure!  Oh my goodness it took a lot of patience to finish this one... and I don't even want to talk about the colouring!  But I am happy with the finished result and I really did enjoy making a card with it.  I was going to make a big frilly, fancy frame but once I had the image down on the base card I suddenly decided I shouldn't overcomplicate it any more than I'd already done.




Sue coloured the image with soft pinks and greys and then made this gorgeous step card.  She added some pretty blossoms and a beautiful piece of lace to finish her project.



Vivien very wisely opted to use the coloured version of the design to make her lovely card.  She teamed it with some wonderful French-themed stamps for a great look.




I printed the coloured image out three times and then layered it for a great 3D look.  I decided to keep the rest of the card clean and simple.
