Follow you dreams...to Paris
In case you had a doubt: I just LOVE the eiffel tower stamp from plate #6 from sweet pea stamps. I also managed to ask Lynette for this set with sentiments in my DT package. I think it's a brilliant set! I haven't seen sentiments like this anywhere else. You get so many different ones for a very low price, especially with the "buy one get one for free" deal that is on now in the shop. You have to check it out. The texts are perfect for those square 6x6" cards. That's the size of my card below.
I stamped my image with versamark ink and rubbed different chalks on it. Then I edged it with a gold pen and layered on a red panel. I stamped the sentiment directly on a red card with versamark and sprinkled gold embossing powder on top. The reason I used versamark and not a goldpad is because in case it gets wrong it doesn't show. I can just heat the ink (so it dries) and stamp again. That way the embossingpowder doesn't get stuck to the first stamping.
It's such a simple yet elegant card. I love this stamp and think it's sooo versatile. I have some more ideas for it, but for that I need a special Tilda...Those Magnolia stamps are really sticking to me :D I never would've thought. Hope you've enjoyed it :)
I made this card for a sketch challenge called sketch and stash. You need to use your new stash and the new things I've used for this card is the sentiment stamp and the red/brown glittery brad I purchased on a sale last week. Oh, and the papers are new too.
