 Good morning.

First I must apologise for the irregular blogs at the moment. The new house is just taking up so much time.

Still, I have managed to make a bit of time today and I hope to sneak in some more tomorrow!

Here is a card for the Stampman Challenge #21 - Resist Techniques

The 3 cream tags were stamped with the script and patterned stamps (Stamp Addicts) and embossed with clear embossing powder. The tags were then coloured with 3 different Distress inks - Fired Earth, Marmalade and Frayed Burlap. The excess ink was rubbed from the embossing to show the original cream tag card underneath.

The same technique was then used with stamps from the Stampman Aspects of Design 6 - Nature but this time three green Distress inks were used.

The stamped images were cut out to give a strip of 3 mini images. These were mounted onto each tag with foam tape.

Gold thread was used through the tag holes. Holes were punched in the tags to thread the pearl tape through which is then used to tie the card into a triangle shaped card.
