Arty Girlzs Challenge #4

This week's Arty Girlzs Challenge is "Glueless". In other words the Girlzs would like us to use another medium other than our usual pva's, glue sticks and double sided tape.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one and I'm really pleased with the result. Again I've gone for something very Plain and Simple. I cut 4 slits into my Base Card and slipped a corner of the backing paper into each one. I then cut out two Patterned Tags, Stamped a Single Daisy 3 times using the masking technique, attached both with Brads and edged the card with Chocolate Brown Ink.


For the Backing Paper I used one from Manuela Zimmermann's The Circle of Life Kit from Daisy Company. I overlayed it with the doodle (from the same kit) on both corners and then shrunk it down to size before printing. The Daisy Stamp is from The Stampman's Double Delights Unmounted Stamps

What a clever idea,I love using brads but find myself reaching for the glue and doulble sided tape because it is quicker.
