Cheerful Sunday Stamper

Hels Sunday Stamper this week wants us to use stash that makes you happy :)
I couldn't be more happy than when I am using my rubber stamps (especially T!m's) and distress inks ;)
So I did! LOL
I was up way too early again this morning so why lie in bed struggling to sleep when you can make tags instead!! LOL I should have been able to sleep for England after all the work I put into the garden yesterday!

I'm also trying to do a bit of a catch up over at Grungy Monday and this idea came from Grungy Monday No 7 hosted by Linda

The challenge week has long since closed but I used T!m's video showing the colour block technique to make the background only I used the postage stamp from the "I see Paris" set instead of the ink blending tool.
Added part of the carte postal from the same set and the Eiffel tower and scrolls were smaller stamps from a clear stamp set of T!ms.
Thanks for looking and happy stamping!
xoxo Sioux

  2. I have to agree that the colour block technique is effective and you have made it work perfectly. However, I see there was more on your mind with this tag than just creating it!! Paris?????
