My Trip to Paris

Yes.........that's me..........it's 1922 and I'm in Paris!





Our challenge for the month of May is to use your Artistic Outpost images along with a Travel Theme.  Please join us for a chance to win.


I started out by cutting the top of the background piece with a Sizzix edge on some printed paper from my stash. I used a variety of Artistic Outpost stamp sets.....including Gatsby, London Elements, Flapper Fashion and Paris Exposition, coloring with Distress inks and markers.  The finished piece is 5.5 x 5.5 and mounted on chipboard.



You can travel in your dreams!

Hey Gerrie!

GF, you look D-I-V-I-N-E in this card! I love your suit, and you haven't aged a bit since 1922!

This card is wonderful. I love how it is cut open to let us peer in! That car is awesome, and I just love all of the stamping...the Tower looks so detailed. And, the dp is wonderful also! You Rock!
