Paris Exposition: Inspired by the Paris Exposition of 1889, for which the famed Eiffel Tower was built, this stamp collection features bold vintage style images including a French version of "What's up?". In French, we translated it to be "Quoi de nuef?" There are several collage elements to this collection which will provide you the flexibility to add multiple layers to your creations.

Just a quick card stamping the focal image in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then coloring using the marker Watercoloring Technique.

Birds of a Feather: Edwardian romanticism inspires this collection of bird images. Included is a perfect ATC background of German text. You will also love the engraving realism to the main bird images.

For this card I stamped the "sisters" in Black Archival, then masked them with Eclipse Tape, and stamped the background, coloring my images with the Marker Watercoloring Technique, sponging the edges in Soft Suede. On my background paper (SU Retired), I randomly stamped the images from this set in Creamy Carmel, then the background image in Close To Cocoa, to add some interest to the paper. The birdcage was stamped on Watercolor paper, sponged, then added to the card using dimensionals and a Swivel Chain from the Idea-ology Line.
