Paris

I used Antique Glimmers to create the background for this stamp.  Then I used Memento Black ink to stamp the Key Script background stamp over all.  http://techniquejunkies.com/key-script/ I swiped my anti-static sack over the vellum so I wouldn't get stray dots. Then I stamped the Bold Eiffel stamp http://techniquejunkies.com/bold-eiffel/ and the word Paris http://techniquejunkies.com/fancy-paris/ near each other on a piece of vellum.  I used Versafine Black ink and used a glittery black embossing powder over all and heat set it.  After it had cooled a bit I tore the vellum  b fore I mounted it.  I ran the vellum through my Xyron machine to apply adhesive.  To get the ribbon, I used seam binding which I had purchased on a large spool of white seam binding -- such a huge saving!  I used 2 markers (red and yellow) and only let the marker sit on an edge, pulling the seam binding under the marker's brush tip.  I did that on each side and the marker ink was NOT evenly distributed on the edge.  Some places were darker than others.  Then I spritzed the seam binding with just enough water to make the ink run on the seam binding.  Then I took it over to my "non-stick" round cake pan (which I bought at a flea market for a quarter) and laid it inside.  I dried it with heat gun and tied it around the card. Then I adhered the vellum over top.

As you can guess, by the time I finished this card my fingers were very inky!  Will you get your fingers inky today?

Sounds like you had some messy fun! The seam binding sounds like it was fun to color.
