I chose to go to Paris and Rome on my tag. I have been to Paris a number of times and it never fails to engage me. The whole city is vibrant, colourful and so wonderful - I'm happy just to walk round and soak it all up - I don't perhaps walk quite as far as I used to but I have a good try before demanding a sit down at a lovely pavement cafe. . . . . (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it)!
This year I was able to realise a long held dream of mine which was to visit Rome. My husband had been away for a very long time and one of our treats when he returned was to spend some time in this most beautiful city. I know it will always be my most favourite European city. There is so much to see and just walking up an ordinary back street you will be greeted with the most amazing architecture - love it!! Luckily I found lots of 'watering' stops here too!
The biggest problem with doing my tag was that the only stamp I have which was of use for this theme is very small and includes images from other cities too. I tried to get round this by including some relevant background stamping from a variety of stamps I have. I've included two very tiny stamped images of iconic landmarks from each of these two cities - both of which I have visited so they do hold personal meaning to me.
Here's the tag I've made:
|The completed tag with stamped background.|
|The Rome heart was created in the same way as described above.|
|The tag was inked and stamped using various colours of distress inks and appropriate images. There are postmarks, landmark images and even a French lady with her address. . . . . !!|
