Tour Eiffel

I just got new images from Rubbernecker Stamp Co. and had to play. All images can be purchased from Rubbernecker in the Stamp Oasis section and the Rubbernecker categories. I stamped the eiffel tower on parchment paper and matted it on Basic Black cardstock. The tour eiffel postmark was also stamped on parchment, cut out and mounted on a 1" circle with a page pebble over the top. I inked up the Spirit of Spring lady eliminating the border and masked off to stamp the background. The butterfly and postmark in the corner are from the postage heart found in the Stamp Oasis section and were affixed to the shipping tag after it was stamped with the French Letter stamp. The tag and images were colored with Tim Holtz Distress inks using a cotton swab and blending with my finger tip. I used the punch from my Carl comb binder to make the holes along the edge of the shipping tag to lace the Basic Grey crushed velvet on the edge. The blush seam binding is Martha Stewart and the fibers are retired SU! The tag is on dimensionals and mounted on The Paper Studio DP. The edges were swiped with a toothbrush and black pigment ink. Lots of Distress inks were used on this card in addition to VersaFine black and brown. Here is the listing: Close to Cocoa Marker, Versafine Onyx Black, Versafine Vintage Sepia, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Weathered Wood, Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo
