I got inspired by this Stampsmith image when I was searching for a Halloween card idea. What if the picture of this amorous couple wasn't all that it seemed? What if he were really someone dark and sinister? Is it love or just another pain in the neck? I guess we'll never know for sure!
For my guest artist submission to the Stampsmith blog, I designed a trio of cards inspired by the vintage style "Paris" stamp plate. I selected the Cathedral of Notre Dame, the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower, and stamped each one with a different ink color. Then I color coordinated the cards using the three colors: eggplant, cranberry and mustard.
A young romantic couple smooches at Notre Dame Cathedral!
The Eiffel Tower, as seen through beautiful iron gates, has a majestic quality all it's own!
A vintage image of the Arc de Triomphe looks as grand then as is does today!
I'm an interior designer turned stay-at-home mom of two beautiful girls. As a result, I channeled my creativity into a small craft business here at home. I love to create handmade cards and tags, decoupage accessories, faux floral designs, hand sewn stockings and much more. I always have new ideas circling through my head just waiting to come out, so I started a shop on Etsy and I'm very happy nurturing it everyday. I hope to go places and accomplish great things with my creative talents, even if I just bring a smile to someone's face!
