Hello everyone, it's already May and we have a new challenge over at the Country View Challenges. The theme is We will always have Paris and my teamie, Christine aka Crafty Field will be your hostess.
Well, I created a tag. For making this tag I had an inspiration board on the Pinterest. You can see it here. It's all about Ladurée, a bakery which was founded in 1862, in Paris and their main product is the macaron. Although I don't eat sweets made with sugar, I love the Ladurée style, atmosphere and advertisements.
When it was dry, I blended Dusty Concord Archival ink through a layering stencil (Shifter Stripes).
I dried it with a heat tool, then I toned back the colours with watered Picket Fence paint.
The little girl was coloured with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Glaze. But first I applied embossing ink on the paper doll using the Distress embossing pen with brush tip. I'm sorry, I have no idea in which Idea-Ology Paper Doll sets you can find this girl, since I have many and I just put all in a big box :-)
The Eiffel Tower was stamped with Distress ink, then I heat embossed with Ranger Super Fine Black embossing powder.
For the balloons, I used two die sets, the Circle Play for the twines and the Birthday (Sizzix Side Order) for the balloons.
The gold branches on the top are in the Funky Florals 2 set, and I heat embossed them with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder.
