Paris Tag

Hi everyone,

I've got a tag for you today.  It's for this week's Out of a Hat Creations Challenge which this week is "LACE", and it also fits -

Simon Says Stamp and Show - "ANYTHING GOES", and
Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Cities of the World  (thanks Silvia)

I started by clear embossing a large Hero Arts lace stamp, then inked with Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany.  The tag then just evolved from there, using stuff that I already had lying on my desk ....

The little 'Amour' origami book was made for me by my daughter, the Eiffel Tower is Stampin Up and the lady image is from The Graphics Fairy.

My daughter is off to Paris on a school trip in a couple of weeks, so maybe that's what I had it mind when I put this tag together.  Wish I was going too as I've never been, although it's a very long bus journey from the North of Scotland.  She's a very fussy eater too, think she'll be surviving on a diet of french fries and croissants!

Oh well, that's me for today, enjoy the rest of your week ladies.

Suze xx

Hi Suze! Fabulous tag, colours fit the theme so well and I love that little silver charm you have added. Paris as a theme is always so inspiring. I hope your daughter has a great time (which she will - it will be a total riot!) Nearest I have got to the Eiffel tower is Blackpool tower cos they always look the same to me!
