A masculine card

Today's ways to use it challenge on Splitcoast was to use tape as part of your card design. I chose drywall tape, which I find extremely versatile.
I decided to use this buck image from Biblical Impressions. I stamped it on creamy caramel card stock with jet black stazon ink. I then sponged the edges with chocolate chip ink. I mounted this on navy card stock and set aside.

Drywall tape is white and sticky on the back. I thought it would be fun to change the color, so I cut a piece and gently stuck it onto a piece of scrap paper. Then I rubbed my Copic marker (E27) over it to color it brown. I let it dry and then adhered it to a piece of brocade blue card stock. I wanted to add some hand stitching, so I pierced holes through the card stock under the tape and then with a needle and blue crochet cotton proceeded to stitch a large zig zag from the top to the bottom of the card. I also added 2 brads at each end of the stitching. I then glued that panel to a chocolate chip card base. I thought a couple of echoing brads should be on the main image panel as well. This panel is popped up on mounting tape. I'm really happy with how this card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.
