This week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a color splash challenge – Whisper White, Rose Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake. Some of the designers this week must have had Paris in mind because we reached for the Artistic Etchings and Chic Boutique stamp sets. I used the Chic Boutique stamp set because I recently purchased it and I had not had a chance to use yet and Paris is a place I’d love to visit. I had a lot of fun creating this card.
BlOG CANDY WINNER: The winner for last week’s challenge selected by RANDOM.ORG is #6 Christiana of Christy Gets Crafty who wrote “How lovely and inventive! You did a great job with this card! I’ve never seen anything like it.” Congratulations to Christiana and thank you all for your comments. I also hope to see you participate in this week’s color challenge.
Chic boutique Eiffel Tower Card
To add more dimension to the background texture I also sponged it with Chocolate Chip. I stamped the scroll frame with Gold Encore ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. The Eiffel Tower is stamped with Versamark and Chocolate Chip and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
