April in Paris

I's one layer week at Less is More this week, and the challenge is to represent something French. I've used a stamp from a set I got in a bargain bucket at the Make It Show, and had never yet seen ink, from a set of postage-style images representing various cities, by Design Objectives.

I stamped with Stazon and then used markers and a water brush to colour it in soft shades reminiscent of spring. The sentiment was a bit of an experiment - I added a peel off greeting then watercoloured over it, removing the peel off when the ink was dry. I think it would show up better with a darker colour of ink, but then of course it wouldn't have linked to the image so well.
