The die cut is Eiffel Tower, Lamp and Poodle from Cottage Cutz. With the Eiffel Tower die I cut 2, one black and one yellow, and slightly offset the yellow one underneath to make it a bit more interesting. Using Black Soot Distress ink I took a couple of stencils to add to the background The tag is from the die set Ellison Tags Scallops and not sure what stamp I used on the top of the Distress inked background.
This is not my normal type of card but I must admit I had fun assembling it. Now if I can just remember where I put the diamond shaped stamp - the joys of getting old !!

The die, Anchor, is from Whimsy and all the papers used are part of an extensive old Creative Memories stash that I have. The background stamps are from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Air Travel and Stampin Up The Open Sea.

The stamp is from Impression Obsession Colonial Spring (K1006) and the sentiment is from an old Stampin Up set. I think I used Archival Potting Soil ink for the image. That does seem to be my ink of choice these day.

Thought this would make a good birthday card for my brother. We often chat on the phone and I thought this was more of a masculine card.
The telephone is a Cottage Cutz die called Old Fashioned Phone, the background papers are from my extensive Creative Memories stash and the sentiment is from the Lili of the Valley Simply Sophisticated set. I also used Distress inks for the shading on the die cuts.

For this card I layered a couple of different coloured acrylic paints and then laid the Glitz Craft Poppy Field stencil on the top. I thought I might try black acrylic paint on the roller for the poppies. It did not work out exactly as I had hoped so when it was dry I laid the stencil over it again and used a black marker to finish off the poppies.
