We're leaving Christmas behind for a bit and moving on to Paris, with today's JustRite new background stamp release -- Paris Background!
My youngest daughter has decided she wants to go to Paris one day, so I thought altering this dollar store 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" photo album cover would be a nice keepsake album for her, for some special 5x7 photos after she visits!
Luckily, the cover had a 2-1/4" recessed window opening that already had the pink frame around it, in just the perfect spot to highlight the crown/fleur de lis part of the stamp! Here's how it started out looking:
I stamped the background with black ink onto rustic cream cardstock and highlighted some words with Copic markers. Next, I cut out the 2-1/4" piece, colored it, and placed it in the window opening.
The spine was already black, so I just added the fleur de lis die cut to the top to accent it. I custom dyed the seam binding by coloring it a little with Copic RV55 marker and then adding some RV52 Various Ink Refill for some variation in the color. JustRite's Fleur De Lis Background was stamped with Rose Bud ink on the lower part of the album.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
