I love Paris



'Lots of Layers' is the new theme this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Please pop over to see what we have all been making and get all the details, we would love to have you join us. As always we love to see a Shabby Chic/Vintage style.

This is one of my favourite styles of card making. This one has 9 layers including the lace.
The base card was stamped to begin with, but its nearly all covered with the papers.
I used a selection from a Graphics 45 paper  stack for  layering,  as well as plain black card.
For the image I used a Crafty Individuals stamp.  All the shading is, can you guess, -- Vintage Photo distress ink, it is in constant use with all my card making.

Will also be entering this card for the challenge over at Simon Says stamp and Show - 'What are you known for'.   I love  vintage and layering.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.

  13. Meggymay...I love your card! Love the colors and the papers! NINE LAYERS?! WOW! You've layered them all to perfection! I love the matted and torn, distressed stamped collage image that is the focal point of your card. So pretty. It's like everything just radiates out from it. Love the touch of lace, the pearls and the rose. That adds such a feminine quality to an already beautiful design. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
