Craft-Room Challenge DT/ Postcard

Hei, tervetuloa Craft-Room haasteen pariin! Melkoinen kaksiviikkoinen emännöinti, huh, kun on vaikeaa taas valita noista upeista töistä ne kolme mieluisinta. Kiitos osallistumisesta.
Mutta uuteen haasteeseen: "Olisitpa täällä!"  DT Hazel haastaa postikortin tekoon, koko on määrätty 6" x 4", pysty tai vaaka. Minä tein parit Pariisi kortit.
-Hi! Welcome, at Craft-Room Challenge!
Our hostess this fortnight is Hazel and here's her theme:
"My theme is Wish You Were Here. I'd like you to make a postcard from a holiday destination, it can be from anywhere in the world or perhaps you've been visiting the beach or a historical place. The size of the postcard has to be 6 inches by 4 inches landscape or portrait."
Our sponsor is Crafty Individuals.
 Here's my DT samples, two Paris postcards. Backgrounds are sprayed with Dylusions (Funky Fuchsia, After Midnight; Cherry Pie)). I used masks and water too.
Many different stamps: right corner text stamp is Crafty Individuals' (CI-017); Eiffel is Third coast RS; Paris- text is Tanda stamps; and the rest are Ecogreen crafts (Butterfly Post).
Versafine inks: onyx black and imperial purple; clear embossing powder.
