Penny Black Saturday Challenge # 11 - No cards allowed

Well I'm quicker than usual this week, I've already done my offering for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The theme is "NO CARDS", so I did an ATC 'cos I haven't done one for ages and I had an idea to use my new PB clear set "Twelve Days of Christmas". My hubby kindly pointed out that an ATC is a card; technically it is but not really, and it does state that we can do an ATC on the PBSC blog, so there! Even though I'm english I do live in France so have gone for a real interpretation of "Les Français" and "La France" (he he)! I like it, here it is:


I used:
-Penny Black Clear Set "12 days of Christmas" - French Hen (or Coq as the French say) coloured again with w/c paints
-Clear Stamps from Royal & Langnickel (Eiffel Tour & France)
-Crop-a-dile for eyelets
-Rest from my stash, the French Flag (Le Tricolore) is done using scraps from my scrap box
