Kraft cards for Country View Crafts

I love using kraft card in my work and was so pleased to find some good quality and 'real' kraft coloured cards in Michaels last year. So taking the plunge I decided to create my designs straight on the card itself - - - - scary!!!!!

Taking a palette knife I daubed small amounts of gesso onto three cards.

Then using torn paper I masked off  areas and stamped through the gaps to get my random stamped sections.

Next came  torn strips of tissue/washi tapes........

....... and strips of stitched torn paper or stitched hessian ......

.... then stamped and inked images I found in my left over images box and watercoloured them with distress inks.

I finished them all with a stamped word and a single embellishment.

If you like to use kraft card somewhere in your projects then we would love to see them at Country View Challenges. There is a £20 voucher from Country View Crafts for the lucky winner.

Thanks for stopping by.
