Mixed Media Monday - Paris

This week on Mixed Media Monday we have another guest host - Barb from The Stamping Queen, a fellow Aussie. Barb chose Paris as her theme, and it's a theme I love playing with, so I was happy! This is a piece I did on mount board and is about 4 x 6 inches or 10 x 15 cms approx. The background is done with Color Mists on Deli paper, lots of different colours and layers, that don't show up that well in the scan. Then there are some highlights of gold metallic paint, which don't show well either. I used a stamped image (Delartful) which I distressed with Distress Inks, some black lace trim and some fly screen. I finished it off with a gold fleur de lis and the word Paris is done with chipboard letters and an Eiffel tower sequin for the "a".
