Springtime in Paris


Wow time sure does fly…I finished this piece this morning and thought I would have plenty of time to get it uploaded…well, it is almost Kudzu’s bath time and I am just now getting it loaded.

Skinny Saturday’s challenge today is fabulous…
This weeks theme is be Inspired…..I have taken the Inspiration from my online friend Kathy Wasilewski. In 1996 Kathy created a Fat book (4″ x 4″) with a twist to incorporate an ATC into the page. So this weeks theme is to create a Skinny and incorporate an ATC into it……..any theme goes so be inspired this week at Skinny Saturday!!!

I had a lot of fun with this one. The base or the skinny of my card is actually a greeting card that I cut down. I stamped script all over it and then aged the edges. To make a pocket for my ATC to fit in I stamped a cherry blossom branch from Stamp Camp on cream cardstock and painted it with sparkling H2Os. I then cut it as shown.

The ATC has a collage image from Altered Pages and the banner is from Alpha Stamps. I stamped the banner on velum and cut the collage image to fit. Before attaching the banner I stamped the script and aged the edges. I stamped an Eifel tower, from Stampland Chicago, to match up with the Eifel tower on the card. As a finishing touch I cut out another set of the cherry blossoms I painted and attached them to the ATC.

I hope you enjoy
Caro
