Transport It

Hello Monday my friends, and welcome back for this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - TRANSPORT IT. 

Wouldn't it be fun to explore Paris on a Vespa? My gal is transporting herself in style, stopping at the Eiffel Tower as she explores the "City of Light." 

I stamped my images on watercolor paper, using the stamp platform, then began to watercolor the image. I usually put a bit of color on my mat, then dilute it with a water brush before adding it. 

Working on adding in some shading and variation in color. 

I'd created some backgrounds previously with the alcohol pearl inks, and stapled this into the Dina Wakley Media Journal. I framed a photo I took of the Eiffel Tower a few years ago on black, and layered it on top. 

 I added in my stamped images. Then I decided to stamp the fleur de lis and Paris onto the burlap with ground espresso. 


I added some dimension with Nuvo drops.

Life's too short, enjoy the matter what you are riding!

Are you ready to join our Transport It challenge? I'm looking forward to seeing your creation. One participant is drawn at random for a $50 shopping voucher from our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp!
