I Love Paris in the Springtime…
Yes I know I stuck with France. However this stamp set was simply perfect for this technique! I wanted a Spring look for the song by Ella Fitzgerald “I Love Paris…”
Also is just great for the Spring and Easter!
This time I did not use the template, I cut 1.5” sq of Whisper White and centered my sponging and stamping. I looked up French postage it is currently at 0.41 E and wrote it in the corners. I also wanted to use French Blue and the closest SU color is “Brocade Blue”; throw in nothing but Soft Subtle inks and you get Paris in Springtime!
