A*Muse Studio Facebook Challenge 4: Paris

A*Muse Studio is holding another facebook challenge and it's taken me all week to play but once again I made it!

The challenge was to use this photo and make a card with at least one A*Muse Studio stamp set. I used three - Beautiful Botanicals, Harlequin and Loving Memories. The photo also lends itself well to two of the new inks: pebble and wasabi.

I don't have the wasabi ink yet but used pebble and lichen together which was also lovely. Isn't the combo of two of the solid papers, french roast and grass, pretty? I covered the grass paper with the harlequin stamp in lichen ink to make a tone on tone effect and then added a strip of satin pebble ribbon - yummy! Lichen and Pebble inks were used with the floral stamp to make a shadow effect on the french roast paper. Grass ink makes the sentiment pop without drawing undo attention to it and there's my card.

So, the essence of the photo is in the card but my time in Paris was anything but sorrowful. It's been years since I've had the pleasure of being in "La Ville de Lumière." I loved so much about Paris from the people -  to the gardens -  to the tourist attractions -  to the amazing museums  - to the amazing patisseries and so much more. My favorite museum in the world is in Paris - the Musée d'Orsay. The impressionists! Love them! Especially Monet and Manet. If you've not had the pleasure, I hope some day you take the opportunity to travel to Paris. 

Bon Soir, mes amis!
