Emphasise the Negative….

Hi all, long time no blog post. It has been a bit mad around here lately! I am stopping by today with an entry into the Moxie Fab World Emphasise the Negative challenge. You can find the challenge here.

I used my favourite My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart, Be Amazing papers to create a tag. I also used the Just My Type stamp set from Lawn Fawn.

I stamped the typewriter on the striped paper. I used a craft knife to cut out the ‘paper’ from it. I then use this to help position my letters on some orange card stock. I stamped the letters in black, except for the H and I – I stamped them in teal, but its not showing very well in the image below….

I mounted the striped paper on foam pads on a tag with the orange card stuck down in behind. I added some washi tape and orange stripe to the bottom of the tag. My sentiment is from the same set and uses paper from the same collection. I added lawn trimmings twine to the tag and capped off the ends of the twine with some matching washi tape for a nice finished look. I sprinkled on some gems and called it done!

I love the effect the foam mounted panel gives. Oh and FYI – that little typewriter ribbon part over the page – I fussy cut that out and mounted it on foam pads too to keep the dimension going – I never thought I would ever have that much patience!

Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to check out the challenge!
