Here is some paper I have been mucking around with lately. I love it (Kaszazz ‘On the Surface’ range).
It has some timber, rust, iron, bark, and looks industrial-grunge. Teamed with the lace flowers, and altered metal flower embellishments, I thought it looked cool.
Ready for a whole range of sentiments.
I have another card for you today:
The stamped image behind the sentiment is a second generation stamp with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. What I mean by second generation is that I inked up the stamp with ink and pressed this down lightly onto scrap paper, and pressed again onto the card to create a lighter, almost faded image.
This is made using products from the ‘Early Years’ range from Kaszazz.
Here are some close-ups:
I like the background papers from this range, but I’m not a huge fan of the old-style look of the picture panels. Mind you, I do like the Cat and the Fiddle one below:
The holes around the background piece and picture panel were made using a paper piercer (essentially a sharp pricking tool).
This one below is my least favourite (it is pink and the baby looks creepy…), but it does have some cute washi tape that I added down the side to jazz it up:
Anyhoo, that’s it for today 🙂
Now that my husband is looking after our son a day a week, it has given me much more time in the craft room – Yay! 🙂
My niece came around in the last lot of school holidays and she wanted to do some crafting while she was here. She liked this technique:
Stick a sticker onto acetate and colour in with Glaze pens. You can cut out the image, or stick the whole piece down like I did. This is the finished product:
I’m not hugely impressed (perhaps it is a dis-card), but at least you get to see what I’ve been up to in the craft room.
