The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week is "A is for...". My inspiration this week was Annie Lennox, in particular her song "Love Song for a Vampire" which was written for the movie Bram Stoker's Dracula. The line from the lyrics that I've includedin my piece is the particular jumping off point for my tag. Why don't you think about an A-related inspiration and join us this week and make an entry for the $50 prize challenge? :)
I printed the quote on my computer, cut it out and matted it on black card then fixed it to my tag. As a final touch I used a glue pen to draw stars in various places and once the glue had dried I used sheets of gold leaf to gild the stars (the dried glue is plenty sticky enough to adhere gold leaf). I used a paint brush to burnish the stars and remove any surplus flakes of gold leaf. That's my piece for this week's challenge, I hope you like it. Now all you need to do is get started on one of your own! :)
Supplies I used included:
