ATC for Grpup Swap

I joined a group recently which is focused on ATC's, and here is my first entry for a swap.

The Challenge is to use pink, black, and white. For some reason I immediately thought of Paris - I DON'T KNOW WHY!! - and came up with this. 'Independent but not Alone' uses a background of patterned paper which I gesso'd. Photo is from a wonderful book from the bargain table, 'The First Time I Saw Paris' by Peter Miller. I sanded the edges of the photo and inked with black sepia pigment. Stamp is also done in black sepia, source unknown. Card edged with oil pastel and uses Canson photo corners.
