Paris with King Charles

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing today, created for a client, features the first stamping I've done since starting Groovi in November 2018!  It features the 2nd element of Clarity's City of Paris - three way overlay stamp and Josie's King Charles duet grid, hence the post title.  My client asked that the image be colored, but left said color and indeed frame up to me, but we're both very happy with the result...

Perhaps unsurprisingly after so long away from ink, it took EIGHT attempts... not all on parchment... to get to the final image with a brand new ink pad, but it was well worth it!

Card: Unbranded white, and Clarity's clear and teal parchment
Groovi Plates: King Charles duet
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating, and cutting tools, City of Paris 3 way overlay stamp, Ranger archival black ink, Perga color pens, and Pergamano brads
