Eiffel Collage - Live, Laugh, Play
Today I am sharing this card on the Artistic Outpost blog and wanted to share with you here as well. I decided to combine a few Artistic Outpost stamps along with ODBD Blushing Rose Collection 6x6 Paper Pad to create a vintage Mixed Media card and incorporated the Sunday Stamps #150 "Banner Love Take Two" Sketch Challenge along with the Addicted to Stamps and More #237 "Make Your Mark" Challenge into the design.
To create this card:
1). Ink the Eiffel Collage background stamp with embossing ink and stamp onto white cardstock. Apply black embossing powder, heat set and once the embossing cools, fussy cut the main circle floral element.
2). Water color the image using water based markers, distress inks and stains and use an extra white paint pen to color the image.
3). On a piece of polka dot pattern paper from the Blushing Rose Collection Paper, use a flourish stencil and apply black soot distress ink with a stencil brush. Apply picket fence distress stain over the entire panel, ink and stamp the Ephemera Backgrounds postage image and the Grunge Elements splatter image using archival black ink.
4). Create the banner using a piece of the green pattern paper from the Blushing Rose Collection and distress both the banner and background panel before mounting both onto the black card front.
5). Mount the fussy cut focal image panel using dimensional foam.
6). Ink the sentiment from The Golf Club with embossing ink, stamp onto black cardstock, apply white embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool. Carefully hand trim the sentiment apart and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by and I hope I have inspired you to create a project this week! Hugs and I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!
