Artistic Etchings

The Eiffel Tower … don’t you wish you were there right now? This card actually came out better than I expected. I used a pre-made cocoa card from Rubber Soul which is white on the inside. This is not something I normally do, but thought to myself I’ll take care of that white inside … lol.

I first cut my rectangle using Spellbinders Curved Rectangles then sponged Brilliance Pearlescent Beige on both the rectangle and all over the inside of the card. I really like the marble effect I was able to achieve. I then set everything aside to dry.

Next, I sponged the outside of the cocoa card with ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown and the Chocolate Chip mat with Chocolate Chip ink.

All images were stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate. I added the layer of pretty paper from Basic Grey and assembled my card.

As a final touch, caramel ribbon and one of the new antique brads finished it off.

Until my next post …
