Sunday in Paris!

But sadly only in my imagination!! Hels' has set "Paris" as our Sunday Stampers theme today in tribute to Gary Moore's "Parisienne Walkways".  Just love that intro!

So, I used some paper from Craftwork Cards "Ooh La La" set which is very French (and hitherto unused) - and stamps by Penny Black (Eiffel Tower) and Stampendous (cafe)

I aged the card that I stamped the images on with old paper DI and some heirloom gold PP spray, inked the edges of the background paper and the images with walnut stain. It looks quite dark here but IRL it's quite bright and sparkly.  You'll have to take my word for it!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
