Paris Expo - Artistic Outpost Blog Hop

This month, the Artistic Outpost Design Team is having a blog hop featuring the beautiful Paris Exposition stamps.  (Singing "I love Paris in the Springtime...." while I type this post, lol.)




The Fleur de Lis die cut was stamped, aged and popped up on the matching bg paper.  The balloons were rolled for dimension and popped up high.  The beautiful Eiffel Tower is stamped, aged and I used a gold glitter pen.  The red ribbon reminds me of a garter.....all adding to the romance of Paris.

Be sure to stop by all the Designers Blogs to read more details about their projects created using the images from Paris Exposition:

Ooh La La! Love that 'garter!' I really like your use of the Fleur de Lis - so clever! Your colour scheme is gorgeous and there is so much depth to this - the ballons look like they could sail away! xx
