Hello everyone, I'm here with my second inspirational project for our May challenge over at the Country View Challenges. The theme is: We will always have Paris and the lovely Christine (Crafty Field) will be your hostess.
As you can see to fulfil the requirements of the theme, I used an Eiffel Tower, a French bulldog and the word Paris.
To make the tag, I used a chipboard and cut out a tag shape with the old and retired but so loved Tag&Bookplates Movers&Shapers Sizzix die. I put a layer of gesso onto the surface and then I painted both sides with Speckled Eggs Distress paint. For the embossed pattern, I used white embossing powder.
The Eiffel Tower was embossed with Potting Soil embossing powder. The dog was coloured with Hickory Smoke Distress marker, the balloon with Twisted Citron.
What I used:
Sizzix Movers&Shapers die, Tag&Bookplate
Sizzix Thinlits die, Circle Play
Sizzix Side Order die, Birthday
