An Impulse To Soar In Paris!

Happy Saturday AO lovers! I made this tag for the Design Team Blog Hop this month!!! Our challenge was to use the Paris Exposition stamp set. I decided to break away from my regular products and go bright with Dylusions Ink Sprays. I wasn't even sure that this stamp set could go bright instead of vintage chic looking, but I think it looks great. I think you can take anything vintage and classy and mix it up with trendier things. It adds more variety and interest.
I sprayed two separate tags with the inks. On one I stamped all my background images in coordinating Distress Ink, and on the other I stamped my main images in Jet Black Archival, along with the sentiment from Quote & Quoteables.  I cut those out and placed them on the other tag. 
I hope you you break away from your usual way of using AO stamps and try something different with them. Variety is the spice of life! Have a wonderful weekend!
