Today, the Gourmet Rubber Stamps team is playing a sketch challenge...it is a simple, straight-forward sketch which is absolutely perfect for our newly released Laura Hunter series stamps. This one is called Paris. The sentiment at the bottom is from Vintage Verses.
Back in the early 90's, Patrick was deployed to the Mediterranean, and when the ship pulled into Marseilles, I met him there and we took the bullet train to Paris. What an amazing, romantic trip it was! We stayed in a tiny hotel near the Louvre, and had coffee in a small cafe` near the Eiffel Tower. We toured the Opera and spent some time shopping in the fashion district, where I bought a snazzy pair of spectator pumps...they're what inspired the use of this pretty striped ribbon from May Arts ("aged" with Glimmer Mist), the dressmaker pens, spool button, and thread.
