Hels sunday Stamper challenge

I'm having a lot of trouble with Eric in the craft room. Before I tell you all about that I wanted to post my first attempt at the Sunday Stamper challenge, this week anything Parisian!
here is my tag.
french tag

I used spiced marmalade, dried marigold and mustard seed distress inks for the background, spritzed on my craft mat and swiped. Then Tim Holtz Moulin Rouge and Paris stamp in brushed corduroy, then a prima stamp of the can can girls. Coloured these with promarkers and fiddled with bits of feather (it's all over my work desk now!) and gems. The paper lace round their skirts was a challenge and it doesn't show so well on the photograph. Then oh la la letters covered with glossy accents and red white and blue ribbon accented with an old earring that I coloured to match in alcohol ink in red and blue.
I'm still finding it difficult to assemble my posts! Practice makes perfect! This weekend I shall post my box I assembled with Tim Holtz and tell you all about the trouble it gave me with Eric!! By for now.
