French Vintage Elegance

Good morning people, its grey and drizzly here in Crewe so thank goodness for Fliss's French theme over at Make My Monday  to transport us to a more glamorous place!!... wish full thinking ay!
this week Fliss wants to see  French Vintage
 here's mine
I decided to go for Parisian fashion and opulent elegance ... mmm.

 These two elegant ladies are from Flonzcraft coloured with Spectrum Noir  and glamorised with a touch of gold Glamour Dust.
 The Arc de triomphe and the ticket are from Travel France by Clear Choice edged with gold EP. I went around the edges of some of the images with a Quickie Glue Pen before adding the EP a technique I saw at HSNW show at Port Sunlight... why didn't I think of that! so much easier to achieve finer lines than with a Versafine pen. As you can see I also used it on the DP, parts of which I cut around using a craft knife. I also cut out some of the scroll designs from the DP which was an oddment and I can't remember the name of it ... sorry :o( and adhered them to the card.

The DT and our GDT Julia have some lovely inspiration pieces over at MMM. We love to see your designs it can be whatever, scrap book page, altered item, canvas the worlds your oyster. If you're struggling for French subjects you can find some fabulous items at  Dezinaworld   and Frenchkissed  some of which are freebies!!

Thank you for visiting I love that you do :o)
take care see you at yours soon

An absolutely beautiful creation Suzi. Love the images and colour combination and the little touches of gold look fabulous.
I'm eagerly awaiting an order from Flonzcraft as I couldn't believe the prices on the gorgeous vintage images.
Hugs, Fliss xx

What a totally elegant card Sue. Those two ladies look sooooo sophisticated. Your gold embossing has worked a treat making this look as though it's from a bygone opulent era. Fab work Sue!
