Eiffel Tower

This card was literally a 10-minute card.  I had been pondering the colors at Color Throwdown for days and couldn't figure out how to get the Tempting Turquoise into the mix.  Anyway, I sat down after dinner tonight and just started stamping and this is the result:



My card base is Basic Gray, as is my sentiment.  Gorgeous Grunge was used to stamp various streaks and splatters in Smoky Slate and the Eiffel Tower was stamped in Tempting Turquoise.  To add a bit of interest, I randomly placed some Tempting Turquoise Candy Dots onto the card and called it done!



Thanks for looking.

Products used:

Stamps:  Penny Black, Gorgeous Grunge (SU)
Ink:  Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Tempting Turquoise
Cardstock:  Basic Gray, Whisper White
Accessories:  Candy Dots

Cheers
Karren
