La Vie Parisienne

I was inspired by a FB friend to play along with the Lace theme

I started by stamping a postcard image with Versamark ink 
and clear embossing it.
I then blended 'fossilized amber' and 'vintage photo' Distress Oxide Inks together.
Rubbing the embossing with a tissue brings out the postcard image.

I stamped this elegant lady with 'coffee' Archival Ink.
A strip of washi tape lace was added across the bottom of the postcard.
La Vie Parisienne was stamped with 'Potting Soil' Archival Ink.

To finish off the postcard, I added a little bit of  'Mammered' Mixed Media Powder and heat set it.

Pop over to Sunday Postcard Art and have a look at all the lovely creations.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Love this beautiful, clever card.

  2. You already know, Helen, I am always happy to come here to see your art! But I was overjoyed to see your art on the Sunday Postcard Art challenge blog this week! And even happier to see that your artwork was chosen as one of the top three--well-deserved recognition! You creatively developed a great background to support your focal image, with whom I immediately fell in love! Welcome to the "hood," Sister!
