Wish You were Here: Paris Postcard

I used the City of Paris 3 way overlay stamps from Clarity to create a fun postcard look on coated cardstock.

Trim a piece of Clarity white coated card to 20cm x 13.8cm. Stamp the City of Paris outline stamp at a jaunty angle in Jet Black Archival ink.
Add the Paris mask across the top right corner and blend Stormy Sky Distress Oxide along the top using a foam tool.

Add the mask outer along the bottom of the topper and blend Festive Berries Distress oxide below it. Remove the masking.
Stamp the background infill stamp (#3) in Cobalt blue Archival ink over the outline.
Add the #2 line infill stamp using Carnation Red Archival ink.
Add a drop shadow along the top and right hand side of the stamping using a very soft pencil. Do the same along the two skylines.
Using the Alphabet and numbers Word Chain letters add ‘Wish you were here’ in Jet Black Archival ink.
To finish, mat onto black cad (20.5cm x 14.3cm) and add to the front of an A5 hammered white card blank. 
Stay safe everyone.  This appears to be the only form of travel for the next few months at least.
