Another eyeful of Artistic Etchings

Here’s the Eiffel Tower  again. I hope you like this stamp because you’re going to be seeing a whole lot more of it in the next few months!

Here I’ve stamped it in Chocolate Chip on top of En Francais, which is stamped Crumb Cake. A bit of direct-to-paper around the edges again. It’s layered on Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla cardstock with a piece of Cherry Cobbler underneath, stamped in Cherry Cobbler. The base of the card is Baja Breeze, which I’ve stamped in the same colour.

The flower is made from scallop circles, wet, scrunched and joined with a rhinestone brad before allowing to dry.

Frayed ribbon again – I can’t stop fraying ribbon at the moment, it just seems to go so well with the vintage look of this stamp set. I confess this is a piece of retired Chocolate Chip ribbon – but now you can buy the same ribbon in Early Espresso, which is darker and even more rich, as if that’s possible!
