Paris Children

I am a member of a group called 'New Inspirations' and every month there is a 'lottery' to win all the ATC's made by other group members. The previous winner gets to select the next theme and this month's theme as selected by Trudy was Paris.
Crafters love anything to do with Paris! - there's so much scope to let your imagination run away!
Anyway I have had this paper for ages and have been waiting for an opportunity to use it. I again scanned it and made it smaller then cut out the images I wanted to use. After collaging, I used 'Tattered Rose' Distress Ink round the edges and overlaid it with 'Antique Linen' Distress Ink.
I love shrink plastic! So out came the stamps and the luggage tag, Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe were all stamped with Stazon and then shrunk!
I hope whoever wins this month's lottery likes it.

Brilliant Viv - I recognise that paper, I have it too and haven't used it yet. Great idea scanning and reducing the images. (Hope I win, but mustn't be greedy I suppose - I did win a couple of months ago!)

I agree with Sherry! Love the look of your countertop sample card too. Very clever. I have an extensive collection myself.

Love your ideas - scanning and reducing, and using the shrink plastic. Very cute card.
