Ephemera Note Book & Paris Tag



Made this little *Ephemera* Note Book for the
Simon Says *Stamp and show some ephemera* Challenge.
I used covers from 7 Gypsies, and the paper has been cut from torchon watercolour paper, distressed with TH inks in antique linen and brushed corduroy. The edges have been stamped with flourishes using Stazon *timber brown*, and I have added some hand doodling and sayings with brown ink. I placed 2 small manila envelopes inside the front and back covers, each containing a manila tag to use for notes or whatever. It has been bound with my BIA. The little sheep on the front cover is the fave animal of the friend who is getting this little book.
I have just shown a selction of the pages.









The Tag is for the *Paris Walkways* Challenge on
Sunday Stampers.

I have used cardstock from TH for the background, adding cut outs of children and a stamped and cut out Eiffel Tower in front to give it more depth. Then it has been stamped with some French sentiments and a postmark. I added the flowers and hearts to finish it, and voila!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

  10. I love the little lamb!! The black pom poms are fun. The swirls on the pages are really nice too - not too much, but enough to beautifully decorate!
