Kraft Card At Make My Monday

Hello everyone, I hope you're all having a lovely long weekend, at least those of you here in the UK that it!
My post today is to share my inspiration for our new challenge over at Make My Monday and this week the lovely Suzi B would like to see us using KRAFT CARD on our creation.
I really enjoyed this challenge as I love kraft card and my creation is a very simple card as you'll see as I didn't want to cover up the kraft card blank I used.


I began by stamping the Carabelle Studio Texture Chevrons image directly on the card blank with white Gesso. I did this by spreading some Gesso on my craft mat and pressing in the stamp, repeating this 3 times. I then immediately washed the stamp to remove any leftover paint.
When the paint was dry, I stamped on the butterfly image (Carabelle Studio Papillon Grunge) over the painted area with Archival Jet Black ink. Some of the image didn't stamp as well as I wanted so I stamped it again on smooth cartridge paper and coloured it with Inktense pencils and cut it out.
I glued the butterfly over the top of the image on the card and added the number text from the butterfly stamp set and some stickers from the Tim Holtz Big Chat sticker book.

Have a great day and see you again soon.

What a brilliant CAS card, Fliss. Like Alison I love the white on kraft and the butterfly just captures the attention perfectly.
