Kraft Challenge Card

This is definitely a change for me.  I've never used kraft cardstock before.  It's never been a favourite of mine, but when I saw this challenge at The Spotted Chick, I thought I would give it a try.  I decided to use denim d/p with it, as I think they go together pretty good.  I punched the flowers out of kraft, inked the edges & added circles to the centres.  I sewed the denim onto the kraft using butchers twine and also used the twine for the flower stems.  I used a sponge and green ink to color it.  The flowers & centres are rounded by using a stylus... you can see this on the following pictures.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:
FTR 17 @ Catered Crop

The ingredients I used are in red...
  • Colors – red, white, green, blue, gray, kraft
  • Stamps and Stickers – strawberries, sentiment, aliens/monsters, scientists or science subjects
  • Patterns – circles, checked/gingham, scallops
  • Color Mediums – markers (ProMarker, Copics, White Signo Pen)
  • Embellishments – clear gloss, glitter, charms, brads, ribbon
  • Tools – corner rounder punch, border punch, die cut shapes
  • Techniques – faux stitching, doodling/drawing, make an easel card
  • Theme – birthday, just hello/because
That's all for today,  hope you'll pop by again soon ~
till then....happy scrapping!

OMG! Enter that card in as many challenges as you want to win. There is no way it could be bested. I had overnight company and, in the process of "cleaning up" I entirely dismantled my "craft cave".

I will never, EVER, do that again! Now I have to re-assemble the clutter!
