Days of Wine and Roses

Well...at long last I manage a Gingersnap Challenge! It just seems that every week I look and think yes I'll do that one.......then it passes me by and before I know it the whole month has passed by!!! How can that happen LOL? Here is my tag for the Chestnut Challenge with the theme of Romance. My inspiration was one of my favourite movies "Days of Wine and Roses" which sounds like a very romantic movie and in some ways it is in a bitter sweet sort of way......it does become quite dark and haunting....haven't seen it for years....does not seem to crop up much on the television repeats....anyways my tag is not meant to be dark and haunting!!! LOL..and if you are going to have days of wine & roses you may as well spend them in Paris.....not that I've ever been but I imagine that's where you ought to be!!!


The Paperartsy Eiffel Tower was stamped in Archival and the post card and Bordeaux (Royal & Langnickel) in red Stazon then DI's Fired Brick, Frayed Burlap and Tea Dye used for the the background.....roses made from stamped paper coloured with DI's as per T!m's instructions on the 12 tags of Christmas posts....a couple of scrolls at the top in shabby shutters and an All My Memories metal heart to finish.

Thanks for looking and happy stamping :)

P.S. I have to confess I started thinking about this tag for Hels Sunday Stamper The Rose last week but was sidetracked and missed it yet again.......sorry Hels!!! Ooh! I also love the song btw.
