Paris Sunset

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all doing today!

I have my day planned, going to be very inky fingers using all my new Christmas goodies by Sheena Douglass, stamps and embossing folders. Then off out tonight to see my cousin!

Today's card is made using Sheena's Eiffel Tower Stencil.  I loved the texture the acrylic paint on the tower created.

I have managed to capture the mica in this photograph.

Can you see what I can see in this photograph?

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 cream square card.
2. First layer is black card.
3. Using a piece of acetate I added Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmer Mists in ginger peach, autumn leaf and persimmon, sprinkle glitter and added a sheet of tissue, put to one side and left to dry.
4. Once acetate was dry on the reverse side I stencilled the Eiffel tower stencil with brown acrylic paint on the tower and Silks acrylic glaze pretty peridot on the trees. I stamped the postage stamp with Stazon.
5. Once everything was dry I adhered the acetate to a sheet of gold pearlescent card with brads then matted and layered onto the black card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
