Tag - French bulldog in Paris

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.

I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Archival ink. After this, I toned back a little bit with wet Picket Fence. And when it was dry I first spattered with Picket Fence, then with Gathered Twigs Distress Paint.

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

Stampers Anonymous, Paris Memoirs (CMS159)
