Wisdom


My final THE STAMPING QUEEN'S 'For the Boys' sample is a tag. I've taken a large chipboard arch (Collections) and formed the piece around this. The arch was put through a Cuttlebug using the Traffic Jam embossing folder and colour was added with Brilliance ink. The chipboard branch (Collections) was also coloured with Brilliance ink and then brass coloured eyelets added at the base of each leaf.

Both stamp images are by Queen's Dresser Drawers. I've cut the clock from 'Pensive Philip' and the men are from 'Checkered Pasts'.

Don't you love that rusty old key! You might find some here.


I tainted German scrap vines with ink to help it blend with the aged appearance of the piece. And there's a Collections word to finish it off!
