I inked my images with the Not Quite Navy Write Marker, stamped off once onto a scrap piece of paper & stamped onto the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I repeated this same step until I was happy with the look of the card. I then stamped 3 images onto scrap Very Vanilla direct onto the card, cut the images out, coloured part of the images with Stampin' Up! Write Markers - So Saffron, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler & set aside.
The piece of Very Vanilla was adhered to the piece of Not Quiet Navy, then So Saffron, to the piece of DSP, Very Vnailla & finally to the Base Card - Soft Suede all with Snail Adhesive.
I completely forgot to add my Silver Brads to the top left hand corner of the card, so I comprised a little. I punched out 6 circles using my Crop-a-Dile, adhered 2 to the top LH corner with Tombow, 1 to the middle of the screwdriver, 1 to the handle of the spanner & 1 to the card where I wanted to place the hammer.
The tools were then adhered to the card - as per the photo with Tombow,with the spanner being my 3rd brad at the top LH corner.
The greeting was stamped in Soft Suede onto Very Vanilla, cut to size & adhered to the card prior to adhering the final Faux Brad it.
