Paris Collage Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Bonjour! The French flag inspired this birthday card that I made for my son, who shares my love of France, featuring the Paris Collage, Triomphe Collage, and Ancient Map rubber stamps from Red Rubber Designs.

     The stamping was done with permanent black ink, onto torn pieces of white tissue paper, layered, and made into a collage. Then I used TCW Mini Raven Mosaic stencil with white gesso for some texture. Once dry, I taped off the inner lines, and applied Distress Spray Stains (Blueprint Sketch and Candied Apple Red) to the outside edges.

     After applying white gesso to Tim Holtz' Numbered Stencil, and waiting for it to dry, I covered it with Emerald Creek (Hammered Metal) Embossing Powder, which I also used along the edges of the black cardstock underneath.

     The Eiffel Tower was cut from black cardstock with my Cricut Expression, and covered with Emerald Creek (Soft Fallen Snow) Embossing Powder.

          I finished it up with hand-stitching in blue, white, and red. Vive la France!
