Eiffel

I was playing with an idea I got from a photograph I saw on FB. Paris with a bit of fog...
So I brayered Stampin' Up! Rose Romance and Basic Grey ink onto a piece of glossy white cs. Then I stamped the Eiffel Tower from Artistic Etchings #120573 Crumb Cake ink. Then I stamped the trees from Lovely as a Tree #127793. Then I masked off the lower portion of the scene and I used the more squatty tree from the same set and stamped in Lucky Limeade randomly. For the roses I used the small rose from Happiness Shared (discontinued) #120534 with the Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade markers. I  colored the stems with the Lucky Limeade and using the Real Red & Daffodil Delight markers I tapped on color to the flower itself. Then I huffed and stamped. I colored in the open spaces of the roses with the markers. I then added some extra green around my trees and shrubs with the Lucky Limeade marker. Using a sponge I tapped in some Real Red on the trees. When that was done I went over the upper portion of the scene with a paint brush I loaded with Whisper White ink to create the haze.

Hope you like this little creation. I sure enjoyed putting it together.
