Another card for the non-cute gentleman. As he gives me things he thinks I might find useful for crafting (& lends me his tools) I thought it appropriate to use some of the ancient fuse wire he gave me some time ago instead of string/ribbon for the tag. I did have to hammer the fuse wire somewhat to enable me to thread it through the eyelet. I stamped & heat embossed my image onto a piece of die cut white cardstock & (starting with the lightest innermost) sponged the Distress Inks over it, then wiped over the embossing with a piece of kitchen paper. The following day I still had inky fingers but I was pleased with the result. Again the project evolved as I worked but I'm hoping the resultant effect is somewhat along the lines of a tool board to which an old charred picture has been attached.
