Paris in the Fall

I'm taking a little liberty with the fall theme this month.  I hope you'll indulge me.  The "fall" in this card is really just in the color scheme.  This quick card was made using Glitz papers, a Glitz sticker and three Altered Pages stamps from the All Things French Mailbox Muse kit.

I matched my brown ink as closely as possible to the Glitz sticker and ran the ink pad around the edges of the black striped background and stamped both "Paris" and "La Tour Eiffel" in the same color.  I cut out a swirl from the same paper as the card itself so that it would match exactly and layered the whole thing together.

It was embellished with a flower and two giant rhinestone stickers.  Quick and easy for sure! 

Products Used:
Glitz paper - French Kiss
Glitz paper - Laced With Grace
Glitz stickers - Love Games
Glitz stickers - Yours Truly giant rhinestones
Bazzill paper flowers
Mailbox Muse stamps - All Things French

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
