Paris is Calling


Paula kindly sent me some of her recent gelli plate background makes and here is one of them.  I stamped over it in the large background stamp from the Papillon TH plate.  I used the leftovers, if you will, of the postage stamp die, so I have in effect used the negative.  I coloured it with various blues and greens from the fresco range after applying grunge paste through the diamond stencil and finished it off with treasure gold.

Simon Says Stamp and Show have a theme of passport to fun this week!!

Lovely Jubleeeeey 1 question, is there an embossing folder that works with the die, is that how you embossed it?

This is such a pretty piece! That gelli plate background is cool! Love the colors. The random stamping of Tim's Papillon script print on it looks really good. I also really like your Parisian theme with the Eiffel Tower, the Fleur De Lis, etc. The harlequin frame is a nice touch. I like the pattern, the texture and the color. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
