Parisian Romance



Good Morning, time for your new challenge at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges where this month it's 'Pretty In Pink'.

I know I could have done lots of things with my lovely FlonzCraft stamps but I've been itching to have a play with this Clarity mask, so created the background with it using Pan Pastels and this lovely romantic couple and think it will make a perfect anniversary card for one of your sons and his wife on their fourth anniversary later this month.

I paper pieced the image, grounded the couple with some sponged steps and framed the scene with Flonzcraft blossoms and grasses.

I hope you all have a good week and as always thank you so much for all your visits and kind words.

  27. I do like the way your ribbon pattern & material gives a real sense of texture & thus imparts the same to your lady's dress. The steps for grounding the couple are beautifully created so they really appear to be standing ont hem & her dress cascading over. The flowers & grasses are a lovely way of framing the whole too.

  39. Oh yes, I remember it well, sorry but this card reminds me of the film Gigi, with Charles Aznovoice and Hermarni Gingold something or other, no idea how to spell her name and if I was a good blogger I would go and look it up but.......
    Extremly pretty background and a fabulous image, love the white space at the edge and the lush bow.
