This is my first time entering the Avery Elle challenge, but I have their delightful Bonjour stamp set and really wanted to play with it.
I took a little poetic license with the sketch, changing the orientation and pulling the long vertical panel in front of the square panel.
The inside lines of the macaroon outline stamp are masked to create the perfect frame for the sentiment. The crepe paper adds texture and mimics the idea of a box of macaroons being packaged at the local patisserie.
I used three Memento inks to create the ombre effect: Angel Pink, Lulu Lavender and Rose Bud. I played around a little bit with scrap paper and combining layers of ink until I had the color profiles I wanted before creating my masked tower.
The centers of the macaroons were filled with an Ice White Viva Pearl Pen - they are more white in real life, but coming across as a bit silver in the photos.
I'm editing this post because Simon Says . . . Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog this week, so I am linking this card to their challenge as well.
Thanks for stopping by,
