Hi there! I'm so excited because our summer vacation is right around the corner. I really would have liked to revisit Paris but Scott opted for more of a relaxing vacation so instead we will be heading to lounge around on the Maui shores which is COMPLETELY fine with me :)
With Paris on my mind, I created a card featuring the beautiful Eiffel Tower:
I joined along again with the Compendium of Curiosities challenge, creating another Frosted Film tattered floral as well as the A Vintage Journey challenge ~ where the theme is Destinations. This is the smaller version and if you missed my card yesterday, you can see what my bigger Frosted Film Tattered Floral looks like by clicking HERE:I gave the die cut Grungeboard Eiffel Tower a generous coat of Crackle Texture Paste:
Amongst all the layers and crackle, is a metal bird embellishment which I altered using Gesso and Distress Ink:
Here are a few steps I took along the way sharing my creative process:
Use Texture Paste along with stencil (****done prior to applying Distress Inks!***)
Randomly apply Distress Inks of choice:
The ink I used to add color to the flower is even French! :) LOL
I'm also joining along with the following challenges: For sketch inspiration ~ Cardabilities and Try it on Tuesday where the theme is In the Frame.
Here are a few photos taken while on our Paris trip in 2011. If you have visited, I'm pretty sure you will agree that this city is quite breathtaking. There is so much to see and do and that is exactly why Scott didn't want to go. He didn't want to have to take a vacation when we returned home to recover from our vacation :)
Scott took the following photos from the observation deck on the Eiffel Tower:
Silly me :)
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have enjoyed my project and photos.
Be Sweet ;)
