This is my swap ATC for our River City Stampers stamp club swap tomorrow.
I used Midwest Products cork and gold Styrene for the base. The styrene was stamped with purple Stazon ink using a Stamping Up!® French words background stamp.
I sponged on Stazon iris, magenta azure and mustard inks to the cork background to give a sunset/twilight effect.The remaining stamps are from ArtistiOutpost, one of my favorite companies.
I added gold pinpoint dots to the Eiffel Tower and balloon with a Zig Painty pen and highlighted the balloon basket and top with tiny half-pearls from Prima.
The lock and key (The collections in the Paris art museums are the key to my heart!) are from Explorer Traditions. I punched the hole with the Cropadile and used one of Tim Holtz's large jump rings for the attachment.
I finished off the title with ink jet printing on parchment, sponged the edges with Colorbox Chestnut Roan and edged the title with RockCandy Studios' mini-french borders. I added just a touch of RockCandy Studios' yellow label wax rub-ons.
Go hug someone you love!
I received Styrene and cork from Midwest Products and am a partner in RockCandy Studios.
