Tag a Day project #3

Welcome everyone and thank you for visiting. Those of you that have been here in the last few days can see that I am still at it, so here is tag 3 of the Tag a Day project. This one is much simpler, mainly just stamps and inks and a few embellishment, but funnily enough, this is actually my favourite so far.
I said I would not write long explanations as to the how to, but this time I will put a few details under some of the photos.
Background stamping done with Picket Fence Distress Paint

Love Paris stamp by Stampendous


Flower by Prima, altered with Cosmic Shimmer spray and Treasure Gold

Well, there you have it. Thank you for visiting and sticking with me!

I am adding this to the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge where the theme is Travel

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
