It took a while for inspiration to strike for this colour combo. Smokey Slate, Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sky and Night of Navy are the four colours, seen above. Suddenly, at midnight as I lay in bed sleepless, my mind drifted to the amusing sight of cars, trucks, buses and bikes hurtling around the Arc De Triomph in Paris.
The recently-retired Chase Your Dreams stamp has contributed the Arc, and "Bonjour", while In the City provided everything else for this scene. I began by stamping the Arc de Triomphe, and then masking it with a post-it note. I didn't take it off until the stamping was all finished and it was a lovely surprise to see how beautifully the Arc stands out in this scene.
You may wonder how you cross the road in this situation? Well at 9.30am on a Saturday morning, there weren't too many cars, and we could cross in the usual fashion, but there are tunnels under the road for you to get out to the centre island where the Arc is situated. You can pay an entry fee, and climb to the top of the monument (324 steps) where you can get a magnificent view all around Paris. Look down Champs- Elysèes, out to Sacrè-Coeur in Montmartrè on a distant hill, and then swing around to get an eyeful of the Eiffel Tower. I highly recommend it!
Enough of my nostalgia, it's time to head on to Nikki Spencer, her card is out of this world!
