Postcard From Paris

I am travelling to Paris for this weeks DT creation for 100 Proof Press using the Eiffel Tower stamp and the Poscard Scroll stamp.
I used Dylusions ink sprays in the background adding sea salt to the wet background, I love the effect this gives.
I used the vintage globe die as my backdrop for the Eiffel Tower which I stamped with black archival ink, cut out and coloured with brushed corduroy Distress Ink. I added some card letters which I found in my stash.
The Postcard Scroll has been added to the top of the card along with more travel associated words. I have also added some random text in the background for a further layer of interest.
To complete I have added an Eiffel Tower brad and a jewellery piece which I found in the sales quite a while ago.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Fantabulous background. This makes me want to get the salt out! I just love how this all comes together the use of the globe with the tower and the repeating towers are inspired!
