Off to Paris

Hi Lisa here today, taking you on a trip to Paris using images from the Artistic Outpost Birds of a Feather and the Paris Exposition sets.  All images are stamped in Black Archival, to add color to the girls, I used STAEDTLER Mars Graphic Watercolor Markers and a Waterbrush. After cutting, I sponged all edges with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I collaged the Eiffel Tower and Hot Air Balloon from the Paris Exposition plate, coloring the images with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, blending with Gamsol, then cutting with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Five. Clouds were sponged in Blue ink to fill in the open space. For the offset Black panel, I traced the die on Black card stock, and distressed the edges. A second balloon was stamped, water colored and popped up for added dimension.
