Enjoy The Journey

I've used the Eiffel Tower from 100 Proof Press this week to create a travel themed card.
Distress Stains wild honey and walnut stain have been used for the backdrop, added to a non-stick craft sheet and spritzed with water, mopping up the beads of ink with my card.
I've added PARIS to jump rings along with adage tickets, film stip ribbon and a 'p' bottle cap.
The Eiffel Tower has been added to an embossed PARIS backdrop coloured with wild honey and walnut stain Distress Ink to highlight the embossing. The Eiffel Tower has been stamped onto white card and coloured with Distress Inks. The bottle cap has been coloured with butterscotch Alcohol Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

This is so cool! I love the colour combo of wild honey and walnut on the base layer...so striking. The embossed layer makes a wonderful textured backdrop for the filmstrip and jump ring letters...never would have thought of those! The eiffel tower has incredible dimension. Beautiful details on this piece.
