Paris Perfume Tag

Playing at Tag Tuesday-- this week with the theme, Capital Cities.  To enter some other challenges, I went with Paris, France.  Please visit Tag Tuesday to see what the other players created for this prompt.

The woman is looking at the perfume bottle label and thinking, I must buy some so that I can look like that!  Advertising at its best.

manila tag lightly rubbed with spun sugar ink then edged with worn lipstick
Lunagirl Moonbeams digital collage sheets:  Label Potions and Meet Me in Paris
Stampin' Up:  A Banner Christmas and Hearts a Flutter stamp sets for the chevron designs
Inks:  VersaMagic Gingerbread, Ranger Distress:  Spun Sugar, Vintage Photo,  Worn Lipstick, Black Soot; Memento:  black tuxedo
7 Gypsies Avignon clear stamps
Flowers and ribbon from stash (dark pink flowers from Michael's' wedding dept.) I went with black ribbon because it made me think of  black choke collars worn by fashionable women (although the women in these images are wearing pearls).  Those are tiny black organza roses along the bottom of the tag.
Blue Moon Beads metal charms: Travel
foam adhesive dimensionals:  some Stampin- Up

Entering these challenges :

Live and Love Crafts:  Challenge #19 Perfume  pink perfume label and et de Toilettes stamp
January  Challenge - Perfume

Stampin Royalty Challenge #210  Picture Inspiration  -- WINNER!
(can only enter their challenge and two others for maximum of 3 challenges)  Like to see some Stampin' Up products.  In addition to the stamps I used and dimensionals, perhaps I'll get extra points for placing tag on chevron Stampin' Up bag as photo background.-- LOL!  You can tell I really drew from the photo-- both women are wearing pale pink dresses--that and the dark pink label and mix of pink flowers along with the chevron and touch of black.
