Let Me Dream Of Paris

Hello Everyone
Although I may not be crafting at the moment I realised it was a good opportunity to try and catch-up with items that were made earlier in the year (or even last year!).
For this scheduled post it is a card I made as a DT sample for Oxford Impressions when I first  received the ever so useful With Love stamp plate (U.K. stampers can purchase With Love from  That’s Crafty).  Alongside this stamp plate I also used the Eiffel Tower photo real stamp from Paris Poste. Paris Poste was one of the first Oxford Impressions stamp sets I purchased,  Soul of the Rose was the first followed by April In Paris then Paris Poste, yes, I genuinely am I huge fan of Oxford Impressions stamps, verging on obsessive!
Card size:- 8″x6″
DIGITAL CAMERAThe background consists of layers of paint and stamping. I started with stamps from another Oxford Impressions set called French Script. I selected the script stamp and damask, a stamp I always seem to reach for, then I used the Fleur de Lys, Eiffel Tower and Paris from the With Love set.
This isn’t a good photograph as at the time of photographing it seemed as though we were living with no daylight at all but it might give you an idea of the actual background. DIGITAL CAMERAFor the focal I layered onto what I find to be indispensable, a Crafty Individual Shabby Tag. A similar background was created directly onto the tag before I added the Eiffel Tower. The tag was embellished with flowing seam binding, lace and an Eiffel Tower charm. Another stamp from the With Love plate is the gorgeous wreath frame into which I stamped Paris.DIGITAL CAMERAThank You for taking the time to visit this post.
