Tio 33 Windows and Doors

This week's challenge made me think of Paris and the amazing architecture of the buildings. We found a gorgeous little cafe in the back streets that made us feel like we had stepped back in time.It had beautiful ironwork and wooden paneling, with a shabby chic paint job that Tim Holtz would be proud of! Started off with a stamped image received in a swap from Tess, and coloured in with a mixture of pro markers and distress inks. The main body of the tag has been inked with brushed corduroy, scattered straw and peeled paint. The old labels and postage stamps were left over from another project, and after adding some brushed corduroy ink around the edges fitted the bill perfectly.
