From Paris with Love ~ Alphabet Challenge A for Around the World

A very later good evening, this post should have gone out this morning as a scheduled post but it just didn't want to do as it was told! 
Over on

we have another challenge, theme and letter for you. 

Any card or project as long as it fits in with the theme. 

Here is mine for your inspiration... I have also decorated the inside but forgot to take photo's :( 

This turned out so different than what I planned to do but I'm happy with the result.  I used a really old stamp set from clear stamps that I think I brought for a £1.00 and had never used.  

Copic Colours 
Top & Bow  
R29, 27, 24, 22
E37, 35, 34, 33, 31
E35, 33
Skin & Hair
E000, 00, 21, 11, E93
E49, 59, 25, 53
E59, 49, 25

The stamps are of course Magnolia from the New Butterfly collection.  I love the little dog, such a sweet face and wonderful to colour and shade.  The paper holders (if thats what there called) I distressed with vintage photo and crackle painted over the top.

I used some old Jute netting, hammered a bottle top, spray painted then distressed with vintage photo. I also found some old chipboard letters that I had brought painted it with yellow acrylic paint distressed and topped with rock candy crackle paint.  Added pearls to the top for more dimension.  

So happy with this photo I just seemed to get the lighting and everything right.  I might even use this as my new blog banner....
