For the front I stamped various Paris related images and embossed with clear embossing powder. I covered with lumineres,Halo Pink Gold and Super Cooper, using a baby wipe. When it was dry I placed under a sheet of copy paper and ironed it to remove the embossing powder. I then used sandpaper to distress it a bit. I found an old map of Paris on the internet and printed it on vellum, the picture I also printed out. The tag stamp is from Hero Arts . I hand wrote the words.
The back was painted with acrylics, stamped with foam swirl
stamps, an image added and Oh La La hand-written.
I coloured the tin with alcohol inks, and made an initial from copper, which I coloured a little and then attached to the lid. For the inside I used a piece of background that I already had and stamped the quotation. I then stamped out three dolls on shrink plastic, one of which I completed. The other two I have sent for Fiona to rescue :) (Along with a ransom note of course! ) I hope Fiona enjoys this, I enjoyed putting it together for her.

This swap, organised by Sweetpea on CCSwaps was the highlight of the swapping year. There were lots of participants and lots of excitement when the gifts went to their new owners. I hope that this will take place for next Christmas. Here is a photo of all the gifts I received, 24, as I participated in 2 groups. Each and every one of them was a delight to open.
