Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Inspiration Francais

Good morning! This post is dedicated to all the "frenchy" friends I have had throughout my life :) Inspiration Francais is this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show. So of course I was immediately inspired to make something for all these wonderful woman that have touched my life.


Here is the # 8 manila tag with the Tim Holtz Papillion stamped image embossed with Zing gold embossing powder, just before I smothered it with royal colours of Distress Stains :)


A close-up of the Fleur de lis to show the Tim Holtz crackle paint with Inka Gold rubbed in the cracks...love :)


I found an old button that is actually off a piece of clothing from the Quebec police department....not sure how I have this!!!


Here I channelled my inner Tim Holtz and grouped together a few trinkets, as well as dying the crinkle ribbon to match, by easily applying Tim Holtz Distress Stains.




I would love for you to join us at Simon Says Stamp and Show for this Inspiration Francais challenge! One lucky random winner will receive a $50 dollar store voucher from Simon Says Stamp :) Three talented participants will be picked as the Top Three and receive a special brag blinkie. Have a fantastic day! Hugs, TRace

Tracey...your Tim style french tag is tres belle! I love all of the vivid color in the background against that beautifully embossed script from Tim's Papillon stamp set. The Eiffel Tower and crackled Fleur de lis are perfect embellishments! <3 Candy
