Eyelets…..Do You Use Them?

Here is your chance to get out those eyelets and what ever tool you use to attach them to your project. Head over to Clear it Out for the next challenge…..it’s a masculine inspired card and use some eyelets from your stash. If you  are intimidated by eyelet, brads or hand made eyelets are acceptable. Stitchy Bear is the sponsor of this challenge and I have been given a digi to play with. The inspiration for the colours on my image were from my husband’s favourite vest.
The image I am using is called “The Big One” from Stitch Bear, Stop by the store and see what other fabulous digis they have. As I said before as soon as I saw the vest on the image I knew I had to colour it green, with that decided the rest just went together so quick. I used garden green and kraft cardstock, I coloured the image with prisma pencil crayons and odourless mineral spirits. I used copper eyelets on hiss fishing had and they were from my stash (I haven’t bought eyelets in five years) I added a copper brad for the fishing reel and I put sepia paper glaze on his glasses.
I hope I have inspired you to join us at Clear it  Out for the challenge.

It is only those who never do anything who never make mistakes.
