E for Eiffel Tower

Isa has put a new challenge up - based on the letter E, with option a) - use the colours brown, pink, and blue; and option b) - use swirls.

This is the first time I have used gesso - thank you Tina for the advice. I like the cloud effect it creates.

The caramel has come out quite orangey, but there are brown embellishments.


Stamps : AudDesign swirl; Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Paris Collection

Inks : Impress Garnet; Adirondack Stonewashed, Caramel; Marvy pen Steel Blue

Extras : Gesso; blue and copper brads; PM copper E; prima flower; DCWV brown card
