Kings 'n Things

Good morning all you wonderful followers!  Wonderful to have you back again.  This week the challenge at  Simon Says Stamp and Show is Kings and Queens.  I decided to do a guy thing and kept it to only Kings.  I cut piece of CS roughly the size of a tag and layered Foil Tape over it and then cut it with the Tag and Bookplates die.  After that, I ran it though the ultimate guy icon - the diamond plate EF (and then of course I covered it all up).  The King of Spades was cut from Kraft-Core Core'dinations and embossed with Tim's Poker Face Texture Fade.  I made what I fondly hope looks like a roadside sign using the Styled Labels die to cut chipboard, which was then painted black with a paint dabber and then painted over with a gold paint dabber.  When good and dry, I sanded it giving it the worn streaky look.  Because it's the only Tim Holts letter die I have, the letters were cut with the Vintage Market die (need to branch out in that tool area - LOL).  They were again stacked on a layer of black letters to give them more dimension and covered with Crackle Accents.  The vintage pickup truck from The Journey set.was stamped in Gathered Twigs and I cut the license plates out of the paper from the Lost and Found Paper Stash.   The piece of vintage ephemera was from a vintage image blog that is now closed down.  Sorry, but I've never run across this one anywhere else.  

Now that you have seen my piece for this challenge, I hope you will scoot on over to Simon Says Stamp and Show and see the DT's projects which are WAY more impressive then my simple tag.  And don't forget, Simon Says Stamp will be giving a $50 shopping voucher to some lucky random winner.
