From Paris with love.... by Julie Dandy
I begged Moira at the trade show in February to buy these cute little bags and it took some convincing let me tell you LOL :D
I have been meaning to do something with it for ages but it has been playing hide and seek with me for a while, but I finally caught it :D
I used Claudine Hellmuth studio paints watered down in a mini mister to colour the bag to start with as it was very white!!
I stamped Artistic Outpost Paris Exposition stamps on to tissue paper with Archival ink and tore around the images before gluing them down with Claudines multi matte medium.
I built up the colour with different colours of the watered down paint drying in between each colour. The amazing thing about these paints is they are waterproof when dry.
I applied some of the archival ink with a sponge to distress the edges a bit then gave it two generous coats of the matte medium.
When dry I added distress stickles randomly with my finger then when dry glued on the lace with the matte medium (its not completely dry in the pic sorry!!!)
I added a Zazi flower and madrigal flower which I only had in white, so I spritzed it with the pink paint :D
I'm really pleased with the finished bag and will definitely be using it :D
Moira has some fab offers on the site at the moment so head on over to grab yours :D
P.S. Woopsie!! I missed off these fabby Glitz stamps!!
