Eiffel Tower - Part Deux!

A second card created with the justjohanna mini Eiffel Tower image.....

I again started with my Eiffel Tower image stamped on a pale gray cardstock and that's about as far as I got the first night! The following evening I remembered a card that Nichole Heady had created using a slide mount made from polyshrink. Since she's oh so generous, she posted the template to her blog, which you can find here. In measuring out the tower image I realized it would fit perfectly inside a slide mount!

Finding this floral print, which I adore, was the perfect start to the card design. The paper is double-sided, floral on one side and polka dots on the other. I used the floral paper as a layer on a peice of SU! Mellow Moss cardstock. The bottom edges of the card were rounded using a corner round punch. The polka dot paper was glued onto the slide mount and I used Basic Brown ink to age the edges of the slide mount.

To showcase the Eiffel Tower image, I created a tiny landscape "painting". Using a piece of watercolor paper, I used SU! water color crayons to create a sky and grass. I then used a very dry brush, dipped in white craft ink, to create teeny, tiny stars in the sky by lightly stippling the ink across the sky. The Eiffel Tower image was then cut out and adhered, using stampin' dimensions, to the painting. The finishing touch was a piece of stitched ribbon slid through a piece of SU! hardware and an "oh la la" added to the bottom of the slide mount. Voila!

Here's a close up shot of the slide mount, image, and painting! :-)
Happy Creating!
