Bookmark Swap

My second set of bookmarks for the Gingersnap Creations Art swap.  Paris and Pisa. :)  The one on the right has a Stampington image of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, heat embossed and colored with Distress Inks.  An Italian postmark and script Italian poem round out the collage.  On the bottom is a tiny map of Italy from a vintage German atlas I picked up at the flea market, bordered with some copper stickers.

The bookmark on the left is predominantly an image transfer onto canvas, with lace trim and a little French stamp tucked in.  It has very little stamping on the front (just some French script at the top), so I figured I'd better put some heftier stamping on the back (since that is one of the criteria for the swap!).  Here is my stamping (on the reverse side)....
Couldn't resist a little vintage French text, too.  Can't wait to see the treasures I get in return. ;)

I'd love to know what the stamp is you used on the reverse of the Paris one. Love it, although all sides are wonderful.
