The Craft Barn Song Challenge - Parisienne Walkways

The current song in the Craft Barn Song Challenge is Parisenne Walkways. It's not a song that I am familiar with. In fact most music between 1978 when my eldest son was born until the late 80's when his interest in music began just seemed to pass me by.

I started my postcard by brushing a selection of beigey coloured Distress Inks over the card. I then stamped the image of the couple with Versafine. The number was stencilled with Distress Ink and then the stamped words added. The die cut heart was coated with several layers of ultra thick embossing powder and then a couple layers of sparkly red embossing powder. The postcard was finished with the computer generated song title and artist's name.
