Good morning. Happy Monday - and it is happy too as I have a day off work!!
Here is a card for the Die Cut Dreams Challenge #74 - Use staples on your work. Well, I have gone to the extent of only using staples to attach items to this card.
The tag - started off as a plain white tag and it was coloured using two different light blue Distress Ink pads. The flourishes are two of Sheena Douglass' new stamps applied using Versamark ink and embossed with clear powder so that you can see the colours beneath. A darker blue ink was applied over the top and wiped off the embossing. The sentiment (also a Sheena stamp) was simply stamped in the same dark blue ink. Pieces of light and dark blue ribbon were knotted through the hole of the tag and three pieces of ribbon were added to the end of the tag using a Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to staple them in place.
The layer under the tag is a piece of pale gold pearlescent paper which has been hot foiled, in silver, by myself. This was torn, aged with blue ink and the edge rubbed across the ink pad to give contrast against the layer below.
The next layer is another piece of the pale gold paper which has been punched at both ends with a punch from Fiskars.
To assemble the card, the tag was attached to the foiled layer. The foiled layer was positioned onto the gold layer which was in turn was positioned onto the base card and all three were attached together with 4 mini staples.
Well, that is it. I hope this fits the bill for this challenge at:
