Card Captain, Day 5, May 3, 2013

Happy Friday! It has been a blast sharing cards this week with my dear friends and talented artists on the  Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps Yahoo Group. Thanks to everyone who sent me lovely compliments! You made my week FUN!!!

This card was inspired by Kim's card on Inspired Paper and Ink which I found on  Pinterest. I used kraft cardstock for the base and stamped repeatedly with the "create..." word stamp from the Urban Tapestry set.

Used printed paper from an old book, frayed the edges with a sewing thread cutter gizmo, then used spun sugar ink onto the edges.

Cut a Labels Eight Nesta in cream cardstock and sponged spun sugar then tea dye ink on the edges. Stamped a portion of Mike's Cloisonne Pot stamp twice as shown, using tea dye. Used worn lipstick for the words.

The vellum tag was a gift from a friend who has a Memory Makers Tag Maker. I stamped a portion of the "create" word stamp on the vellum with Distress tea dye ink. To dye the string, I tapped tea dye ink on my kraft sheet, spritzed with a dab of water and crumpled the string in the wet dye. It dried very quickly. You can use a heat tool to speed the drying, but be careful not to burn it.

Used a heart eyelet to secure vellum tag. Added a metal "photo turn" with a mini brad and also added a bit of double stick tape underneath to keep it from moving. Used a strip of Scrapbook Adhesives Craft and Photo Tape to secure a strip of pleated ribbon on the left side.

Below is the inside of my card. Used spun sugar on the edges of white cardstock with flecks. Stamped Lonely Girl on the left with spun sugar ink. can see a green variation of this layout here.
