A Paris Tag

I've had a busy weekend working on my college assignments but after I'd finished I allowed myself a little play time with my other new plate of T!m stamps.  I love the background one!!  I stamped everything with black stazon, for the background I swooshed the pad across the stamp to create a more subtle effect, for the tower I really inked the stamp to make the image bold and stand out and for the man, I stamped him onto a separate piece of card, cut him out and 3d foamed him onto the tag.  I went around the edge of the tag with walnut stain distress ink.

PanPastelsUK have a free theme this week so I am entering my tag.

Anyone who knows me will know that I am inspired by anything T!m (Tim Holtz just in case you don't happen to be familiar with him!!) so been as this tag is all about T!m, I'm also entering it into this weeks ABAC challenge entitled inspired by.

Nice one, Sam. Your background is nice and subtle to allow the images to stand out.

Fab tag, Sam - and thanks for the tip about inking the stazon differently for different effects.

Hi Sam. I'm temporarily online so doing a little catching up. Hope you are well this weekend.
Love the images you've used on this tag. What I really love is how you've used your Stazon in different ways - such a great idea which I must try as your background is really effective behind your prominent tower.
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for joining us at Anything But A Card for this challenge.
