Artistic Etchings and a Concord Crush

We made this 3 D project at the launch last week and for those who couldnt make it ...
Here's the supplies list:
Stampset: Artistic Etchings, En francais background
Cardstock: whisper white, New in-colour: Concord crush
Ink: Concord crush, Marina Mist, Early Expresso
Ribbon: Early Expresso striped grosgrain
Tools: Vintage wall paper textured embossing folder.
Big Shot machine, brad, dimensionals.
12 month Calendar  and a Stampin' Up pen!
I think this idea would be great as a teacher's gift as the end of year present.
Or a calendar for your desk, mind you in a few months you may be wanting to book a holiday to Paris ... to visit the Tour de Eiffel  and a few royale chateaux ... the images have that very detailed and antique look.
I have used the En francais background stamp in Marina Mist with a collage of crowns and key stamps in a kind of bright vintage style.
For the Top note we used a new technique which I call: Inked embossing folder which fairly much describes how it's done.
We inked up the sizzlet embossing folder with concord crush classic ink, just by rubbing the ink pad on the positive side of the folder, and placed our piece of white cardstock inside.
After rolling it through the Big shot machine it comes out with purple ink in the negative part of the texture...
OK you had to be there, you have to see it in real life ...
Concord Crush and Marina Mist just go so well together and the ink just washes off in water.
Be back with another card tomorrow.
