Artistic Dual

My friend and fellow stamper, Anne Marie, came over for a long overdue "creative day" and we challenged each other to make a card with the new Artistic Etchings stamp set. 

I whipped out my new handy dandy Color Coach and flipped to the Getting Started Combination of Basic Black, Daffodil Delight & Old Olive. The effect on the Old Olive was accomplished by using a dry embossing folder with my Big Shot and then Versa Marking the entire image before heat embossing with Clear embossing powder. It reminds me of those pressed tin ceilings or back splashes. 

The Eiffel Tower is embossed with Black embossing powder and I added a bit of BLING to the crown with Gold Fine Galaxy Stampin' Glitter. Also snagged some of Anne Marie's, Raven Lace Trim & background stamp to complete the card.
Here's Anne Marie's shabby chic card as well, a totally different look, which I LOVE!!
Thanks Anne Marie for another FUN day of gabbing, snackin' & creating! Can't wait till our next one..
