Hi Nomad followers and friends. A big nomad welcome to Winnie who has just joined the merry band. Another rainy day so no excuse not to craft. Is that a double negative?? I am quite pleased with this project. It was going to be a card but it has morphed into a hangy thing to commemorate a honeymoon in Paris and help warm a wall in a new house.
I used a stamp from Crafty Individuals Vintage Ticket sheet CI 239 on some handmade paper. I think it's banana, but it could be recycled clothes!! Nice texture. I was going to stamp a couple of times in red and blue but as you can see I got a bit carried away and used a number of different DI to create a whole sheet. If they don't get buried in the rush they will undoubtedly be making an appearance at a later date.....
I used CI 260 Parisian Romance and put lace round the main image and used sticky pads to attach it to a piece of CI background paper. I used the large stamp from CI 306 French Corsets on the background paper in Memento London Fog. It's subtle. I cut and arranged a number of the vintage tickets and added the clipped out words Travel to Paris. The lady is part of CI 285 Hats and Bonnets. The Spring sentiment is also CI. I added a heart and key from Tando, both mini's. The key I sprayed with gold paint. I was going to paint the heart red but it fit so nicely au natural, including the soot marks! Key to my heart??
I added an organza double bow. Fab tutorial on tying these over at RRR. Just make sure you used ribbon that looks the same front and back, unless you want a half and half ribbon of course. It took a little practice but I now have a big bag of these to use on different projects. Thanks Ginny.
I put lace around the whole thing the added a bit of organza for a tie. I was going to put it on a canvas but decided that was wasteful and found a piece of nice thick card instead. So my tie and the lace are all nicely sandwiched and neat and tidied away.
