How Long Has It Been...

...since you used any eyelets?     For me, it's been forever LOL, so it was great to have a play this morning using some rather quirky shaped eyelets that I had forgotten were in my stash.    This is my entry to this month's theme over at Sarah's Inkurable Stampers challenge blog:





I started by cutting a tag shape out of purple cs, I stamped the Art Declassified image onto some white cs and stuck that to the tag, I then added the olive cs scallop edge (TH Alterations die), I was going to set the eyelets onto the orange strip of cs but thought they would look too plain, so I added bits of painted cs out of my scraps box and then set them with my crop-a-dile (which I use all the time to make holes, but I haven't used in ages to set an eyelet!!!)       The sentiment is a favourite of mine(and so true!) and it's from an ATC booklet I bought ages ago from The Stamping Queen., both the sentiment and the strip of orange cs were stuck on using foam tape for extra dimention.     I was going to leave it at that, but the purple section looked too empty, so I brought out some white acrylic paint and my favourite Darkroom Door b'ground stamp and voila! no more empty space : )  
I then added some orange and some red ribbon, as well as a white button, all from Craft Queen (because I like to rub shoulders with royalty LOL)      So now that I found my stash of eyelets, I wonder what else I can use them on?

Don't forget you still have time to join in with this fun challenge until the end of the month...
