Parisian sunset



Saturday morning and time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week we would like you to share your 'Favourite Things' with us. Our sponsors this week are DigiStamp Boutique and My Mums Craft Shop.

Dilemmas or what, Distress Inks or Pan Pastels, flowers or a scene, well in the end the Pan Pastels won the day along with a Parisian scene and it's another take on the card I blogged last week as I am still in Parisian mode. Again I used the Clarity Parisian mask to create the background along with PP's then paper pieced a lady and grounded her with some darker PP's and a Stampscapes cobble stamp. The Oak branches are also Stampscapes and the grasses in the front are Indigo Blue.

When I showed this one to number one critique his comment was "will she or won't she" when I said will she what he replied "jump", I actually thought it gave the impression she was looking down over the City from a park somewhere on the outskirts, clearly he saw something different to me !

Happy weekend to you all and time allowing will be popping round over the weekend.

Good morning Brenda and a beautiful one it is.
I'm with you on her looking out over Paris.
Funny isn't it how men always see something different?
I guess it's the romantic in us :)

Lol, No she is not going to jump she is looking at that magnificent sun! Another wonderful card Brenda. Just love that sun, the trees, grasses, Oh hell, everything! Michelle x

Marianne said...

I would rather think she's clearly staying away from the edge, because she's afraid of heights even though she does like the view. Hmmm, that sounds like me, really, LOL.
Another lovely Parision scene, Brenda.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm with you on this one Brenda. I thought she was enjoying the beautiful sunset over the city from a hilltop somewhere.

Your DH is too funny! I don't think she will jump at all...She is just being a bit pensive...looking down at her favourite city and planning her day!

Beautiful card Brenda!

Gerrina said...

Beautiful scene, and what is it hard to choose... For me I don´t have so much stash with me on the road this weekend, so choose for stencils and Caas. But Panpastels and DI are the two that would make my choise so much difficultier if I had been home... Have a sunny weekend, hugs, Gerrina

Well, I looked at this card and thought the same as you, then after reading your Hubby's comment, went back and totally agreed with him and couldn't get that thought out of my head.
Fabulous card, great image and wonderfully put together.
