Paris....London....New York!


Which city conjures up your creative juices........??

I chose PARIS!!

Now....when I think of Paris....I think of the city of LOVE...or maybe it's just a Valentines Day Hangover...whatever the reason....I ran with it!

I started with G45 Curtain Call papers...#1 because I wanted to use red accents and nothing is better for that than B and W papers.....#2 because of the wonderful Paris image!!

I cut a tag using the Tag and Bookplate die. Then, I chewed it up with my handy dandy Distrezz it All....have I mentioned I LOVE THIS TOOOOL!!

I then stamped on the face of the tag with Embossing Ink and the Fabulous Flourish stamp....and dusted it with Forever Red Perfect Pearls!

Using more Curtain Call paper.....I created the Rosette!!








Now, the heart was made from Clearly for Art WhiteOut, Glue 'N Seal, Rock Candy Distress Crackle, Alcohol Inks and Fired Brick Distress Stickles! you can see how I created the heart by visiting HERE!!






I then added some FABBY Petaloo CMC flowers....dabbed with Fired Brick Distress Stickles....the tag was then accented with some metal gooodies!!












I hope I've inspired you to join us for this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show!! Look forward to see your linked up creation......who know you could be the next recipient of this LOVELY....

Lynne, your Paris tag is wonderful! I love the colors and papers you chose to use! That flourish you stamped across the G45 paper set the whole tone for the reds you brought into your project! I love the red and black flowers. As always, your pieces have such a sweet femininity to them. <3 Candy

Lynne, what a spectacular tag! I've never considered putting an embellishment behind the item being embellished. Like the flowers in the top right. That looks fantastic! Love your choice of colors and other elements, too. Soooo, did you decide if it was just a Valentine's Day Hangover? (LOL that is too cute) Thank you for sharing your masterpiece!
