Paris Tag

Hi Again, yet another crafty day for me, been busy preparing a very special card for someone dear:-) cant share it with you till she gets it though...,
So for the time being, I'd like to share a little tag with you:-) some random stamping I did with my Paris stamp set( by Hero Arts).

I first stamped the Ledger background stamp on white CS with some Antique Linen distress ink and the stamped the Star Burst Lace stamp with a mixture of Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass distressed ink.
I then went over the left lower corner stamping the 'Fleur de lis' in rows.. I added the Eiffel Tower, the flowers and the Paris banner with Black Memento ink. I also used a postal mark stamp and a 'Carte Postale' stamp (on the right edge) as well.
Finally I used more Antique Linen Ink and Walnut stain and started distressing the edges...
then I added some light strokes of Chipped Sapphire to finish off the tag:-)
So have a great day and Happy stamping!!
