Office Supplies With a Twist!

Happy Saturday to you.  Saturday is always the day for Our Creative Corner and this week another of our new teamies is hosting, Kim Price, and she is challenging us to use OFFICE SUPPLIES  on our project along with a twist - USE RED.  Here is my take on the challenge - sort of a mish mash of real office supplies, faux office supplies and cool Artistic Outpost vintage images.  To start with, the real things are a piece of a steno pad and staples.  Faux are the Tiny Attacher staples (upper left), typewriter key "L" (for lunch), mini paper clip and the red label are all from Tim Holtz.  I made the faux typewriter ribbon with rayon seam binding and copic markers.  And the Artistic Outpost images are all from the Secretary Pool or Ephemera Backgrounds plates.  The "Past Due" was printed on my home printer onto a Tim Holtz Vial label.  The straight doily was colored with Barn Door Distress Stain - a quick and easy few swipes and BINGO it was red!  The background was stamped with images from Artistic Outpost and all the stamping was done with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink then sponged with lots of Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I also made this card to fit the sketch at Mojo Monday this week, which hopefully you can tell that I flipped it to the side..
And that's it.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you will also stop over to Our Creative Corner.  Lots of yummy office supply art there this week.

Hello Linda
I am impressed with the typewriter ribbon; this is a blast from the past!
The Red and Black Palette is eye-catching,and it should feel loud but there is a softness to your card.
