Beth Duff Designs - Spring Release

Hi friends! I'm excited for you to join us on our first Beth Duff Designs Creative Team blog hop! Our Spring Release has 8 beautiful sets. I'm sharing with you Adventure's Abroad - Paris. I absolutely love this set, the images are amazing and the words are so pretty!

Before we get to the good stuff, I want to invite you to join our Facebook event to see all of the fun cards our team has made using the new sets!

I started by using the Eiffel Tower, I found a beautiful image of it all lit up at night and used it as my inspiration. I used Copics to color in a red and yellow glow. I made the structure's landings a light grey.  
For my background, was made using Black Distress Oxide ink and my Clarity Brushes, I wish the color had come out darker, but I ended up with a dusky evening sky.  I took my white, Moonlight Smooch and dotted stars in the sky.  

I added a strip of solid grey cardstock to add a "cement" base to the tower. Next, I built the grassy lawn using Your Next Stamps's Grass Edge die, I cut out multiple pieces and layered it top to bottom.  

 I added the cute little Poodle, colored using Copics and Brutus Monroe StyleFile markers. She felt sassy enough to complete the image.

Finally, I took a Sizzix banner die and cut out a strip of white cardstock. I stamped the "Bonjour" stamp unsing Delecata Red ink. It turned out fantastically and I'm not sure I can let it go! 

Next, I wanted to use the little images and the sentiments to create a background for this gorgeous girl. I took them individually and stamped them out using my new InkOn3 Embossing Ink, I was super happy with the coverage of the ink and the way it held the powder! The powder I used was Stampin' Up Iridescent Ice, it has a little bit of shimmer compared to just plain clear powder. 

Next, I took my new Tsukineko Radiant Neon in Electric Pink ink pad, with a sponge and did an emboss resist background.  I love the way it turned out.  My girl was colored using Copics. I LOVE her style and she was so fun to color.

Last, I took some retired Stampin' Up Gold Washi Tape and covered some white card stock with strips. I stamped the "Amour" using Black Stazon Ink. I'm not sure why, but the Stazon and I are not getting along  well so it took a few tries for me!
