Two Eiffel Tower cards - for Imagination Crafts

Here are two cards, both featuring the Eiffel Tower - and both very different.

Eiffel Tower & Flowers card

This card is quite whimsical in feel, very light and airy.

The background is a plain white A5 card. I stamped all three sizes of flower, using Versamark ink and embossed with white powder. I then used Distress Oxide ink in Broken China and Iced Spruce, and blended this on top. I also added a few sprinkles of water, then blotted, to add texture.
The next step was to stamp two large flowers and the word Postcard onto a vellum panel, using Versamark and white embossing powder. I edged the vellum with a gold marker pen.
I stamped and embossed the Eiffel Tower in gold, and stamped again onto a spare piece of Vellum, embossed that, fussy cut it and layered on top with glue gel.  
Next, two corner images stamped onto spare vellum with Versamark, embossed with white, and fussy cut. The vellum panel was fixed to the main card with glue gel, added behind the stamped images so they wouldn't show, then the corners added on top.

Finishing touches
Those two white-embossed vellum flowers were layered over the other two stamped on the vellum panel, again using glue gel to add dimension. I tied white string into bows, added a touch of glue gel, and more glue gell to fix the sequins, the butterflies and the word Paris (Magi Kutz, which is a velvet effect fine chipboard material). I painted 'Paris' with Starlights in Rich Gold.

 PARIS card
For the background I stamped a scrap of white card with the dress form and studio stamps, using black Archival ink. I then stencilled on top with the scissors & cogs stencil, using Structure Paste.
Step two was to add Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Shabby Shutters, blending all over with a baby wipe. I then used a cloth to clean the inks off the stencil paste.
The Eiffel Tower and Paris decal were glued to textweight paper with Decoupage Plus, then fussy cut.
The butterflies, roses and perfume bottle were stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold on heatproof acetate, then fussy cut. The perfume bottle was coloured on the back with a generous helping of Sparkle Medium in Rose Gold. More butterflies and roses were stamped to the card with the same ink, and embossed.
Finishing touches

The embossed and fussy transparencies (flowers, butterflies) were fixed in place with glue gel. The panel's edges were darkened with Shabby Chic Relief Paste in Sage, applied with a finger. Finally, this piece was glued to a folded white A5 card.
