Mid month reminder for Stamping Sensations

 Good morning, a scheduled post to remind you of our June challenge at Stamping Sensations. The optional theme for this month is 'Around the World' or of course you can enter with 'Anything Stamped' as long as your focal image is a stamp. You still have plenty of time to join in 

As always there's a fabulous prize for the lucky winner

As you can see my card has a Parisian theme, the Eiffel Tower is a Darkroom Door stamp and the glamourous  lady and sentiments are from a set that I've had for years and not used, I think Kanban.  I stamped the Eiffel tower onto a square of cardstock and lightly stencilled the clouds
I stamped the lady on a larger square of cardstock, then using a craft knife cut around the front and arm of the lady. Using a smaller square die I cut the aperture to insert the Tower. The stripes on the frame are stencilled, image coloured with markers and feathers added to her hat. Hope this makes sense!
There is plenty of inspiration over at the challenge blog if you want to play the theme and are stuck for ideas so please hop over for a visit.
Thanks for stopping by today
