Simple Adorned Charm Insert Swap #2

I just love the new Artistic Etchings stamp set (I'm sure I've said that before!), so I stared at the set, playing with my little 1 x 1-1/4" cutout, trying to figure out how to make a charm insert with it. I put it aside a couple times, thinking it wasn't going to work, but I think I finally got it after some playing.

I stamped the medallion background in So Saffron and the Eiffel Tower in Early Espresso (my new brown color of choice? Time will tell!). The 'amour' was stamped with Cherry Cobbler on another piece of cardstock and glued on top for a collage look. Another fun thing about these inserts - they use up a bunch of scraps!

Stamps: Artistic Etchings; Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla; Ink: So Saffron, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler.

Thanks for stopping by!
