Remembering Paris by Vintage Stamping

My DH was in Paris last week (yes without me...on business) and so this is where my inspiration came from for todays post.
We were in Paris on vacation a yeart ago and it is such a beautiful city; I could live there.
When I think of Paris, vintage comes to mind becasue of the history and beautiful archietecture. As I mentioned in my previous post, I love the vintage look and desire to do more of it and become better at it. These cards use a lot of different stamp sets to layer multiple images on the the cardstock and it is so much fun to do. Another technique I used is sponging on the edges as well as rubbing on the stamped image to make it look old. I am pleased with the finished look of my cards and look forward to doing more.
