Kraft away.

Welcome to Sunday in a cold and chilly UK, please can we have summer?

I have been so busy with the new challenge blog I haven’t had much time to create and make this week, but I wanted to do something for the  Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge where they want to see us use kraft in our projects.
I started with a piece of kraft card and some die-cuts glued on then scraped gesso across.
Next came some black paint, some white gesso through a mask and some dribbled white gesso.
Using corrugated card I die-cut one of Tim’s beautiful butterflies and distressed with gesso, black enamel accents and walnut stain DI.
I used more movers and shapers to create the little arch and a corrugated fleur de lis.
Having used walnut stain, antique linen, picket fence and a touch of rusty hinge distress paints on kraft card I die-cut using the tattered flower garland, painting white gesso round the edges of the petals and text stamped each one with black archival.
I also used one of Tim’s metal book plates to create the focal sentiment, again shabbying it with white gesso and using remnant rubs for the words.
Then with hessian, lace and some more remnant rubs I created the collage.
Oh and nearly forgot I added some little flicks of watered walnut stain DI.
Have a wonderful day whatever you have planned and a fabulous week ahead.
