What a wonderful collection of items in today's Inspiration Challenge! I chose this Paris Locket . The artist had several w/ an Eiffel Tower image, but I also like the postage stamp along w/ it.
I stamped the background onto the chartreuse c/s, then added just a hint of color by stamping the postage marks using the Memento inks. I used this again on my Eiffel Tower postage stamps after I stamped the frame and masked it and stamped the Eiffel Tower. I also added the large numbers. I inked the shadow postage stamp w/ the Memento ink and stamped it off once before stamping over the postage stamps. These were all cut out using the stamp scissors. The postage marks were stamped in the Memento inks on the Travel rectangle as well.
The Fly circle is a sticker I had in my stash (from Michael's $ bin). It was yellow, but I changed the color using a Sharpie. The finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for looking! My blog: The Write Stuff. Sorry! I had to delete a bunch of really old posts from my blog & this is one of them.
