Parisian chic


I bought a couple of items from Ebay which arrived yesterday. One of them was Tim Holtz Visual Artistry stamp set called French Market. These sell for about £20 but I got it for £4.50, bargain, and it was brand new. It's an anxious moment watching the last few seconds go on an auction wondering if someone will step in at the last minute and outbid you which is what happened to me on another on the edge die.

I stamped the Eiffel tower onto kraft, teamed it with the dress digi with french writing from LSS and a piece of torn dictionary with the word style highlighted. The backing paper of books is from BO Bunny Weekend Market, flowers from Wild Orchid and MS punched leaves. The sentiment is from a Teddy Bo stamp set. Lots of distressing and DI Vintage Photo.
