Impression Obsession Designer Challenge-Love is in the Air

Good Morning!!!

I hope you've been having a good week!!!

You are in for a treat this week as I am certain that you will have the opportunity to see some new stamps in your blog travels!

The theme this week is to create a love card.

Love is always in the air in Gay Paris. Dina has done a fabulous job of creating a super romantic stamp using the Tour D'Eiffel as the major focal point.! Yep, that's my bit of french for today!

I actually love to listen to people speaking french and can speak a wee bit myself. I've always done really well when taking french classes, but sadly, I lose it without practicing. I can therefore read more than I can understand orally, but I can probably string enough sentences together if I got lost in the City of Lights. Then again, Parisian French differs from Canadian time I happen to be in Paris, I'll let you know how I made out!!!

My card is fairly simple but I really like the way it turned out. I stamped the image onto the shipping tag with Archival Ink. After letting it dry, I watercoloured bits and piences of the image. Lastly, I sponged around the edges using Vintage Photo Ink.

I wanted to add to the romanticism of the card, so I cut out the frame from the Ornate Oval die in Espresso Cardstock. I also stamped the blusing bride panel with the new X and O Cover a card stamp.

I mounted it all on an Ivory card base to give it a Vintagy Valentine look.

Be sure to visit all of the blogs to see the Design Team Projects and hook your creation up HERE on the IO stamps blog

Good luck with the challenge~
