and now here's my card, i've even STAMPED for this one, can you spot where? (un hint: ou est c'est la tour eiffel?!)
(vintage: sheet music; patterned paper: basic grey; perfume label sticker: laughing elephant; eiffel tower stamp: hero arts (stamped on a scrap of 3m inkjet printer transparency with stewart superior india inkpad) dimensional sentiment sticker: pink paislee; diecuts: k and co; florals: prima; brads: my mind's eye; pearl flourishes: want2scrap; fabric tape: love my tapes; washi tape: recollections; adhesives: scotch gluestick, staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape)
lest you think i'm so intrepid that i stamped fearlessly right on top of my fancy french perfume label, let me assure you, there's a TRICK: i stamped in permanent ink on a scrap leftover from an inkjet printer transparency sheet, then cut the image out; thus i was able to take my time in choosing where i wanted to add it in to my collage! (note: because you'll be stamping on the reverse side of the transparency-- the pebbly bit, that's designed to hold the ink-- if your image has text it'll be BACKWARDS when you turn the sheet over!) luckily the eiffel tower is pretty symmetrical, so the "flipping" issue was no problem for me.
something else which is never a problem for me is adding in lots and lots of layered embellies; au contraire; in fact, that's kinda my best thing, lol! :) here's a close-up so you can see my collection of diecuts, fabric florals, brads, pearls, fabric tape, and... well... there's a little bit of everything, all stacked up on some lovely vintage sheet music!
i used the palette (and the aforesaid flowers!) for the current color throwdown (#208):
being generally, as you know, a big user and aficionado of "light red" (lol, sorry, leslie!) i was pretty excited last week to discover a an entire card making blog being run by fellow fans of that color, called in the pink! this fortnight the challenge is anything but square, and you have to go see the absolutely drool-worthy cards being posted over there!
in the meantime, i hope you'll head over to the sweetest thing and grab this sketch, see miss karen's gorgeous card, and check out the rest of the AMAZING design team cards! then start plotting and planning your own card so that maybe ♥YOU♥ will be the next guest sweet sunday stamper!!! ♥
