Paris...

Well, after I completed all this 6 coaster, immediately I fell in love with all of them.  This is the effect that I wanted and the color just nicely blend-in with the background.  Yes...I did it...

I used the Distress Crackle Paint in the middle of the coaster and after that I inked it with 2 different distress ink colors, old paper and vintage photo.  Once the ink dry I stamped the wording from Hero Arts's background stamp Old Letter Writing with Stazon Timer Brown.  I used the same Stazon for the Eiffel Tower and Mail Stamp as well.

I took another white sheet of paper stamped the Eiffel Tower with Versafine's Crimson Red and Mail Stamp with Versafine's black stamp pad.  After the coloring I cut it out and paste as the 2nd layer on top of the first stamped image.

Once the glue dry, I finished it with a layer of Mod Podge.  Feel like going to Paris now...I hope you did enjoy the journey with me.

Cheers... :-)
