Be Mine

I recently received some beautiful paper from Echo Park Paper Company along with their coordinating Unity co-brand stamps.

The paper collection is called "Be Mine" and is Paris-inspired. It inspired me to make this scaled down version of the Eiffel Tower.

I found a free image of the Eiffel Tower online and worked in GIMP to create an image that I could use as a template.

After I created the templates I made a quick sample from basic copy paper to make sure it would hold together well as a 3-D object.

Once I had created the base structure from the Echo Park paper I got to stamping and embellishing.

I actually had plans for a few more accents on the actual base structure, but I got so excited about the whole thing that I forgot and started gluing down my stamped images...oops!

Patterned paper: Echo Park Paper Company {Be Mine};
Stamps: Unity Stamp Company {I Adore You}; Unity Stamp Company {With Love};
Ink: Memento {Tuxedo Black};
Embellishments: Maya Road {Trinket Pins};
Tools: Fiskars {Craft Knife}; Fiskars {Paper Trimmer}; Fiskars {Scissors}; Martha Stewart {Scoring Board}; Loew-Cornell {Embossing Stylus};
