Paris plaque

This is a little plaque I made tonight. I'm not always sure where the ideas came from, but here is this one.

I started with a piece of board my hubby cut for me out of some scrap. Sanded it and painted a color I came up with after mixing some colors. I didn't want pure white, so I added a little dark brown to it till I came up with what you see.

I started playing with some new fleur de lis clear stamps I got, of course on sale, at Hobby Lobby last week. Used a few dark brown inks. I sanded down the edges and inked then also.

I have lots of chip board letters, so started glueing, glittering and playing with the layout. I found this great old picture of the eiffel tower online, printed it out, distressed it, inked it and put it in the corner.

And here it is. The final product. It will be in my Etsy store tomorrow.
I'll be posting new Christmas decor ideas next
