Textured Krafty Layers

Another three-fer for you this morning - the current challenge at The Kraft Journal is to use ink, paint, or markers. I've used crackle paint, which is FULL of texture for the Textured Layers challenge at Let's Get Trendy Now 3; and Simon Says Stamp is having an anything goes week. 


Supplies: kraft card stock; misc. patterned paper; Antique Linen Distress crackle paint; Tonic edge distresser; Spellbinders butterfly die; Hero Arts sentiment stamp; Colorbox Frost White pigment ink; Stampendous White EP

I die cut the butterfly from kraft card stock before painting it with the crackle paint. It curled as it dried, but I was able to fiddle with it & get it back to shape by bending & flexing it. The edge distresser was used on the kraft layer after the smudges of paint dried. I used double-sided tape to adhere it to the white card base but left all the corners loose for extra dimension. The patterned paper flag panel was hand-cut, I tied the floss bow around it, and then attached it with foam tape. The butterfly is also adhered with foam tape. I was a little off plumb with my sentiment stamping (of course, my last touch before sticking it to the card) so I adapted that by adding the panel to the base at an angle. The sentiment is parallel with the card base. And it even looks like I did it on purpose! Woot!

Jessi
