LiM challenge - one layer card - theme someting French

Hi again fellow bloggers
for my challenge card I have used distress inks for the background using a sizzix heart framelit die as a stencil - it is a mixture of shaded lilac laid over a little picked raspberry using a wet wipe to get a swirly, less even effect . The eiffel tower stamp is a second generation print off from a stamp by crafty individuals to give a faded antique appearance - the frame lines of the stamp are embossed with my scorit to give a shadow appearance. The sentiment and stitched edge is hand done using a kuretake calligraphy pen.


  1. What a super effect, so soft and vintage in feel. You're ever so brave to hand letter the sentiment! It's come out fantastic so well done :) Thanks for playing with us at LIM!
