Loves Rubberstamps Design Day

It's Saturday, I'm back with another inspirational post for Loves Rubberstamps. I had the greatest opportunity last April, to travel to Paris. It was a real quick trip I was gone only 8 days. It was a school trip, in which my son went with me, so it was jammed packed 5 days in Paris and 3 days in London, England. So I thought this card would bring back some fond memories of my trip. So I'm using Travel Marci by La-La Land Crafts and their Eiffel Tower steel die which I needed to buy! Anyways I started off using Chocolate Chip for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used Pink Paislee collection called 'London Market' for the rest. I added three layers and then cut out the fourth layer using Spellbinders 'Label 23'. I added a transparency from the same collection that I laid on top of the 4th layer. I added a postage stamp along with a picture of the Eiffel Tower which I cut out using postage scissors all from the 'Ephemera' collection by Pink Paislee. I cut out the Eiffel Tower using La-La Land Crafts steel die which Laura has brought into the store here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/item_1732/EIFFEL-TOWER-DIE-from-La-La-Land-Crafts.htm using brown music paper from the same collection. I then added some double sided tape to the back of the die so I could add some glitter. I used Yellow and Seabreeze glitter to stimulate the Eiffel tower at night with all the lights.  I stamped Travel Marci using black memento ink and coloured her using Prismacolor Pencils and Copic markers for the skin. Her skin looks like she got sunburned but I can assure you she's not. You can find some of the La-La land Crafts stamp sets here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_317/La-La-Land-Crafts.htm 
I stamped 'Life is a Journey' and the passport from the same stamp set using Coffee Bean Vivid ink pad. I added some 3-D stickers by Paper House that I found at Michael's.
