Parcel From Paris

Morning... So I spent the majority of yesterday painting at my brothers new house. We managed to paint the living room, kitchen and landing as well as one coat in the spare room which was fabulous! I'm a little achy so I'm having a day off from that today and spending it with Rachel this afo, but in the mean time I have a little card for you...

As the Tour de France is kicking off this weekend, I have something a little different using one of the older boy stamps, Riding My Bike.   I decided to go a little vintage and use a resist technique on the image rather than the traditional colouring in!


I've used antique linen and frayed burlap distress inks to age the card and then a few splashes of water.  It's finished off with sentiment from the Greetings Postmark set and Grunge Elements set. A little bit of twine finishes off the look of the parcel!

Have a fabulous Sunday and I hope to see you tomorrow....
