Kraft and Twine


Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by today to see what I have to share for our new 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.
That wraps it up for this piece.  If you have any questions, you can leave them in the comments section.  I hope you will stop by Frilly and Funkie to see what our talented team has to share.

Absolutely beautiful Linda!! I love everything about it. Two questions - what is that gorgeous paper you used for the background and what are the kraft sleeves? Can we buy them like that?

Jean McKenzie said...

Whoops sorry, I should read better before I ask! I now see the little sleeves!!

Love what you've done here, Linda. The stacked flower is AMAZING and the distressed edges of the floral paper add so much. I'll thank you for the "Ah Hah!" moment about twine fitting perfectly in the grooves of the corrugated cardboard... it looks so cool like that, and hadn't occurred to me!
