Bon Voyage!

For this week's Creative Expressions DT project I have used JustRite Cling Bon Voyage Set again. I decided to made a tag and repeatedly stamped the word 'Paris' in Old Paper Distress Ink to make a background. 
I stamped the word 'Bon Voyage' in Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then edged the tag in both colours, though a lighter touch on the darker brown. I stamped, in Jet Black Archival Ink, the Eiffel Tower on to the tag and the three 'postage' style stamps on cream card and cut them out and then edged them with Old Paper Distress Ink! 
I used the black ink and stamped the long stamp on a piece of white cotton ribbon for decoration and added a little shrink plastic Eiffel Tower as an embellishment. Then I popped a checked ribbon on the top with a vintage style key finding. This will wing its way to a colleague at work who is off to Paris for an anniversary present - lucky lady! Thank you, as always for stopping by!

So elegant! My shrunk tower had a serious wobble to it when I tried that! LOL, yours looks great though!

Beautiful Tag Gabrielle, I like the way you have cut the stamps/postmarks out and edged them with the old paper distress ink. That boarder stamp works well on the ribbon too!
