I see London.....I see France....

Shame on you for thinking about looking at my underpants!!! LMAO!! I know it is bad humor but maybe a few of you will get a chuckle out of it.



I am not 100 percent happy with this card but thought I would show it anyways. Been trying new things lately and this is the first time I have ever tried putting a tag on a card. The one thing I wish I did different was use an eiffel tower stamp or die cut instead of a digi. I am not that good at cutting out pieces in the middle of an image and I wish those two white spaces in the middle were gone!! Grrr! I know most of you would just get your trusty craft knife out and go to town but me and my craft knife don't get along very well! LOL!

Challenges:
Etsy Inspired - Inspired by the pendant HERE
Clearly Delightful CDBC8 - Use a tag
Fab N' Funky - Favorite color(s) ... my fav color is BLUE!!
Crafty Sentiments - Chipboard or cardboard (tag is cardboard)
A Crafty Little Place - Use a tag
Delightful Sketches and Challenges - Distressing
Creative Inspirations - Recycled Element (tag is cardboard from packaging)
Stamping Vacation Very Vintage - Anything faded
Stamping Vacation Special Month - If the eiffel tower isn't art I don't know what is!! So this is one of my interpretations of artist appreciation!

Thanks for stopping by and while your here check out the candy I have up for grabs...it is a post that will stay at the top of my blog!

I think this is fabulous and I love that you stamped across your tag like you did. Would never even notice the white spaces...I think they bring your eye to the tower now that you mention it. Also, don't get along with my crafty knife. Don't change a thing. Thanks for playing along at ACLP!

Stacie, it may not have turned out the way you wanted but I think its really cute. Your little tower is cute. I agree though, the cutting can be a pain, but you really did a pretty good job on this one. Thanks for trying something new for our challenge this week at ACLP.

Smiles!

I like it Stacie! I think you did a terrific job with it. I don't do many tags myself but I love the effect! Your Eiffel tower looks great! Me and the ole Xacto don't have a great relationship either but hubby told me to just take it slow and spend some time with it so we get to know each other a bit better. ;) It worked...well sort of. Still not my favorite tool!

thanks for playing along with Stamping Vacation's challenges!

I think your card is perfectly designed! The gentle sponging around the edge really sets the stage, the coloring on the eiffel is beautiful, and the embossing on the BG is a wonderfully accenting backdrop. Thank you for entering CDBC8!
