Au Revoir Mon Cherie

The card I am sharing today makes use of stamps from two stamp plates from The Stampsmith. The main image of the couple is from My Honey plate The cancellation marks, map and Au Revoir are from the always popular Paris plate.
This is the first time I've used this particular stamp and when working with it I couldn't help but get caught up in the romance of the image and how a story starts to unfold. That is for me, what makes photo realistic stamps so appealing, stories can be created or the people featured in the stamps can become adopted family.
In the top corner I cut a piece of scrap paper to form a corner accent and then stamped Au Revoir directly onto the paper. After stamping the map from the Paris plate I tore it in half.
In the bottom corner is the other half of the stamped map and the cancellation marks.
Stamping onto pattern paper creates simple, co-ordinated embellishments for projects. Lynne x
