Artistic Outpost - Blog Hop Paris Exposition

Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Blog Hop!   Today the Artistic Outpost Design Team  is sharing projects featuring Paris Exposition!

A close up of the charms on either side:




 I purchased this wonderful wooden arrow already painted in a lovely ivory color with the hanging wire. My  color combination of the Ivory and Black with a hint of pink comes from this week's City Crafter Challenge Just a Hint of Pink.  I am also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp and Show Anything Goes Challenge.

The stamps used are from the Paris Exposition  and  French Flight plates to create the collage of images.

The charms are stamped onto the clear fragments using Stazon Ink.  Apply glossy accent to acrylic and back with ivory cardstock.   The flowers are from the Flappers Fashions plate. I accented with a touch of pink watercolor pencil and water.

The edges of the arrow was distressed with Ranger Black Archival Ink. The tulle was the finishing touch on the wire.
