Embrace the Journey at CountryView Challenges

 Hello lovelies!

Well my card for today is the second one I have for the current challenge at Countryview crafts which is ...we will always have Paris.....

To create this I have used two stamp sets from Tim one that you can find here wine-blueprint. The other is part of a set called Cityscapes. I also used distress oxides hickory smoke, aged mahogoney and pine needles plus a stencil from Aall and Create called lotza-diamondz.
I created the card by firstly stamping the Paris cityscape across my 7 inch square card 4 times. I then added the grey stencilling and also stamped the wine bottle and glass. Next I restamped the wine bottle and glass and added colour to the main features using watercolour pencils. Then I fussy cut them and added them to the card. 
Lastly I added a little more stencilling in colours to match the bottle and wine to bring the card together more. 
Hope you can join our challenge.
Good luck!
Hugs Rachel
