Parcel From Paris

Morning.. Jen here today whilst Anne is on her holidays!  As the Tour de France is kicking off this weekend, I have something a little different for you today using one of the older boy stamps, Riding My Bike.   I decided to go a little vintage and use a resist technique on the image rather than the traditional colouring in!


I've used antique linen and frayed burlap distress inks to age the card and then a few splashes of water.  It's finished off with sentiment from the Greetings Postmark set and Grunge Elements set. A little bit of twine finishes off the look of the parcel!

Hope you are all having a great weekend.
