Frilly and Funkie challenge. I am the hostess this fortnight and my challenge is Kraft and Twine, two of my favorite crafting materials. It's a super easy challenge, a little on the shabby side, so I am hoping we have lots of folks who will want to join in.
Here's my creation using lots of kraft - the corrugated cardboard kind and also the sweet little kraft sleeves. For my twine, I used a two ply twine coated with gesso to give it a shabby feel and some of the burlap string from my shop. I finally broke open my first pack of Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas and used the Distressed Doily die to cut it, then embossed it with the Regal Flourishes texture Fade. I used the same texture fade on the kraft sleeve and dry brushed gesso over both the sticky back canvas and the kraft sleeve, as well as on the little butterfly. Several layers of the corrugated cardboard were cut with the Tattered Florals die as well as some crinoline to make up the shabby flower that I topped with a mini rosette. The Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers ticket die cut fits perfectly into the kraft sleeve and I stamped my sentiment on it.
Frilly and Funkie to see what our talented team has to share.
