AF17 Antique Keys


Here's another of SweetStamps.coms newest ArtsyfArtsy release.  For this card I started with a wooden tag and used Piccolo Enamel & Embossing Powder Adhesive and applied various colors of Piccolo Embossing Enamels ( Vintage Black, Silver, Bronze and Copper, Stary Sky and Real Rust) and then applied Mars Black Enamel Gel along the outer edge.  The AF17 Antique Keys was stamped on black card stock using Distress Embossing ink and Queen's Gold EP and heat set.  I then cut the keys so they were separated and layered them to the tag using foam dots.  The main body of the card was stamped using Nightfall Shades Dye ink and the 5005 Spotty Dotty Border and the 5001 Three Stripes Border both from SweetStamps.com.  Both the card and navy blue cardstock were then edged with Delicata Golden Glitz ink  and I also used a pouncer to add color to both.  The sc006 SweetCuts Fancy Leaf die was cut from a kleenex box, the sc010 Mini Flower set flowers were cut from a Dove chocolates wrapper and a foil vitamin wrapper.  The red netting is from an orange bag and the buttons and other embellishments were from my stash.  Great use of items I had hanging around the house.

SweetStamps.com has a Pintrest board, where ALL of the newly released stamps and projects have been posted- in the ArtsyFartsy board. Here is the link: http://pinterest.com/sweetstamps/
