Eiffel Tower Birthday

So I had this idea with this week's Nacho sketch.


I thought, what if I used stamps to create the two banner-y layers?  So I gave it a try.


It took some finagling with the Stamp-a-ma-jig, and I wish that I'd moved the image panel a little bit further down, but overall I think it worked out okay.  I pulled out some old retired favorites (Artistic Etchings and Curly Cute, still love them both) and used the little doily stamp from Tea Party to complete my collage.  Is it a collage?  It's not a whole lot of elements.  But anyway.

My parental units are on their way out here right now, so I've got a bunch of stuff to do today, like make up the guest bed.  Better get to it.  Cheers, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Artistic Etchings, Curly Cute, Tea Party
Ink:  Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo
Paper:  Soft Sky, Whisper White
Accessories:  Labels Collection Framelits, Stamp-a--ma-jig
