Vintage French Flair a La PA Style


France has been inspiring us again this week over on the PA blog.  I adapted her day #3 tag technique with the tissue paper, fresco paint, stencilling and stamping.


I then added the stitching.


And finally the embellishments and the finished tag.

Now I don't normally do this, but as I was reading down the list, all these challenges just seemed to fit together perfectly.

Dragons Dream - TIO - have a recipe of vintage, texture and flowers, and you have to include at least one real stamp, so I stamped the PA french script in the background using timber brown stazon.

**Edited**  I made top 3 for this tag



Stampotique's theme this week is 'French flair', hence the Eiffel tower die image and French script stamping.

Simon says stamp challenge have a theme of 'pin it' where they want to see our pins, paper clips etc, so I've added a hat pin to the hessian, the scroll is a type of paper clip and the destiny tag is attached to the ribbon with a mini safety pin.

Your tag "ala France(Papillon)" came out beautifully, Sam! I did not have such good luck with mine, yet! And, in the end, it definitely has a lot of French flair to it! Bravo!

Really love this one Sam. The neutral colours are gorgeous and I love how the hessian and stitching tie in together too. Well done you on using a flower, lol! For me it would be harder if they said DON'T use a flower ;D!

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.
