Parisian Style

Louise selected the theme of Banners for Tag Tuesday this week. Instead of wondering what words would go on my banner I selected the stamp first. My most recent purchase is one of Crafty Individuals’ newest releases, CI-285. If you click the link you will see I cut out the two ladies from this generous sized stamp.
I cannot find the source for the decorative tags I printed onto white card which I then overstamped with a favourite set, Anna Corba’s Vintage French Labels. For the little banners I stamped the words with Studio G alphabet stamps (a must have), hand-cut and adhered dusky pink velvet ribbon over the seam. Very simple tags.

    These are lovely, Lynne. Your very sophisicated ladies are beautifully coloured and I love them against the soft blue background.
    They are definitely ‘ladies with attitude’…they portray a time gone by when people had style and the ladies truly knew how to dress.

    Have a great week

    You said very simple tags—but they certainly don’t look it. I love how you used to two to express your statement. The ladies are so special, the backgrounds are beautiful.

    I love what you’ve done with that stamp – wow! (and I’m sure you’re glad you found the Paris stamp to use again!). I love the style of the dresses of the Edwardian era – in my dreams I would’ve lived then!
