SNSS Parisian Postcard~

Good Morning Sweet'nSassy friends and fans! The recently released Parisian Postcard is a new favourite for creating collage style, technique cards. I love how this one "e-v-o-l-v-e-d" I say that because I have been lacking creativity recently. Does that happen to you?

I began with white cardstock, post-it notes (tore the edges) and sponged using three tones of Ranger inks...When I was satisfied, I stamped the images in black versafine. My images looked like they were just floating so I added the beautiful postcard stamp and postmark. Next, I decided I wanted a pop of colour, so I stamped the roses on Rose Red CS and cut the image in strips and glued them to the design. I wasn't convinced so I added the black swirls and used my long forgotten prima flowers for accent. 
Materials used:
Stamps: Parisian Postcard
Paper: SU
Inks: Ranger inks - mustard seed, crushed olive, peeled paint, Versafine black 
Accessories: Prima flowers, Want2Scrap bling
Be sure to check out this sale!!! 40% off on these sets that will not be coming back!

I love the new style of the cut line along the lined image. The blooms are layered onto the Ariana Lace die. The paper is from this collection and used the ticket tag for my sentiment.
