Merci for a new stamp release!

Woo-hoo! Third Coast Rubber Stamps has revealed the new release stamps, which includes lots of Steampunk as well as some other great stuff! Best of all, the new release stamps are 20% off through June 10th! Click here to be whisked away to check it out for yourself!

Here's my card featuring Flying Fran (VB-395-R) which you can find on page 41 of the Spring '12 Supplement.

I decided that Flying Fran was a French aerialist and gave her a tightrope wire. She was colored with my Copic markers. The patterned paper is from the Curtain Call 8x8 pad by Graphic 45. I've been using the heck out of that pad!

"Merci" (WS-113-BB) is also from Third Coast Rubber Stamps and can be found on page 26 of the Early Spring '08 Supplement.

BTW, the card is enormous at 5.5" x 8.5". I also discovered that the !@#$% Recollections 8.5" x 11" paper is only 10 15/16". Drove me nuts til I actually measured the freaking paper and realized why things looked uneven. Reminds me when the monochromatic Bazzill cardstock in the packs was 1/16" short.

It also photographed oddly and distorted the layering. It's really actually straight irl, except for that 1/16" discrepancy along the top. *sigh*

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter this card in the following challenge(s):
Simon Says Stamp & Show Anything Goes
