Yesterday I was SOOO excited to go to my LSS The Queen's Ink because all the new stamps and stash from Stampers Anonymous have arrived! I've been waiting ever-so-patiently for them to come in, and now that they're here... I went a little.... NUTS! I've been up to my elbows in ink ever since... here's the first of several creations coming over the next few days.... just had to break in these new stamps from Tim....
This is from the new Papillon set - love it! I used the new distress stains for the background, putting the stains directly to the tag background and the spritzing heavily with water to let them bleed and blend together. I went over the stains with distress inks afterwards to intensify the colors.
Stamped the french background and the numbers (from the Stuff To Say set) in walnut stain distress ink, and then brushed some rock candy crackle paint just over the word Paris.
The ornate frame and keyhole were distressed using black, juniper and blue cloud paint dabbers.
I've had this little eiffel tower charm forever, and this was the perfect use for it....
Hope you like it - I'll be sharing a few more projects over the next few days - new Wendy Vecchi stamps and Art Parts - LOVE!
Have a great week!
