Had a Bit of a Play

I've had a bit of a play over the weekend, and this is what I've come up with. 
The background is watercolour paper that has been painted with red and yellow Ecoline inks. As this was just a play day I sprinkled rock salt onto the wet ink to make it a bit more interesting. This has then been stamped with a mixture of Stampin Up stamps.
The next layer is a sheet of music paper that has been sprayed with ink through an A4 stencil. I've also added some Frantage to the top corner.
Next came the postcard layer. This was sprayed with coffee (loving the smell) then stamped with a combination of Stampotique, Darkroom Door, and Tim Holtz stamps.
The Moulin Rouge has been stamped onto the same Ecoline coloured paper, and the chipboard  Eifel Tower has been coloured with Metallic Distress stains and overstamped.
I made a brad with my Build a Brad kit and a Darkroom Door stamp the was stamped onto black card then embossed in white. 
Fifi Frantage is a Kanban stamp. She's been coloured in Prisma pencils then had the full Frantage treatment with embossing enamels, glass glitter and mica fragments
I'm entering this into the following challenges.
Frilly and Funky 3 in a row, I've gone with the ink sprays, metallic distress stains and chipboard.
