Loves Rubberstamps - Design Day

Well I'm back with another inspirational post for Loves Rubberstamps. I decided to keep going with my travels plans this week. Last Saturday I showed you a London background stamp by Justrite, today I will show you the Paris background. You can find some Justrite stamps here in the store;  I started off using Chocolate Chip paper for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used 'French Kiss' by Glitz Designs for the rest. I stamped Paris background stamp onto acetate using black Stazon ink and used a brayer to transfer to the acetate. I found the easiest way to stamp on acetate was to lay the stamp set ink side up, place the actetate on top. I then took a brayer and rolled it across the acetate, check by lifting one side up to see if the ink transferred. If it didn't, gently place it down again so it doesn't smear and brayer across it again. Let it dry before going on to the next step.  I then the laid down on top of double sided adhesive and then added Warm Highlighted glitter to the backside. I decided it needed some colour behind the glitter,  I took Tim Holtz alcohol ink using Watermelon colored the glitter to give it a tint of color. Then I took some silver mirrored paper and ran it thru a Tim Holtz embossing folder called 'Postal Set'. Again I took some pinks and browns alcohol inks to colour the mirrored paper. I then used a La-La Land Crafts Eiffel tower die to cut it out.  You can find this die here in Laura' Store  After laying Eiffel Tower down on the background I added some glue using a glue pen and then added some salmon glitter to it. I added some off white crochet lace and pink/brown satin ribbon by May Arts. I added a sticker from French Kiss collection by Glitz Designs.
