Simon Says Stamp and Show Take Your Pick ... London, Paris or New York!



Simon Says Stamp and Show Take Your Pick so I chose Paris because I have some Paris stamps in my stash. I chose the colours of the French flag, red, white and blue. The tag I did using the wrinkle free distress technique with fire brick, faded jeans and distressed stains picket fence. The background stamp was from Tim Holtz Papillon, the foreground was the Eiffel Tower from Tim Holtz French Market clear stamps using the colours of the French flag again.



 I also did some shrink plastics of the Eiffel Tower, two of which I attached to the ribbon that I had dyed with distressed stains fire brick, faded jeans and  picket fence.



Voila! the tag was finished. I had fun with the shrink plastic.

  1. Carol, your Parisian tag is beautiful! I love your blended background colors of red, white and blue! Boy...does that ever POP! Your background with the script from Tim's Papillon stamp set really looks fantastic! Your Eiffel Towers look great and the red/white/blue ribbon tie at the top is the perfect finisher! Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
