Something New at the Kraft Journal

So you just saw me use this angel...well, she wanted to play again. Can you blame her? At The Kraft Journal they want to see us use/try something new, and so I put my thinking cap on. The layout's not new, and neither is the stamp...hmmm...


Supplies: stamp from Inkadinkado; Versamark; Pirate Gold EP; patterned paper from Bo Bunny; Kraft card stock; glitter paint; Shabby White Frantage EP; Tattered Angels Gold glimmer mist; Tonic edge distresser; paint brush; background 'splatter' stamp from Unity; ribbon from stash

I wanted to use Frantage powder, but I find when I stamp with Versamark not many of the enamel chunks stick. So I used glitter glue to stamp the splatters, and the end of my paint brush to stamp the dots (this is on the kraft paper) - the result was super thick Frantage! Yay! I used the paint brush to add some Frantage to the music paper too, but this is very hard to see even in person. After embossing, I saturated the card stock with Gold glimmer mist, and let it dry overnight. I then distressed the edges with a tool, and rolled the paper in every direction to further distress it - since it's card stock you can see some folds & bends. I used foam tape to adhere the kraft to the white base, and more foam tape to adhere the music panel - this card is THICK and loving it :)

xoxo,
Jessi

Awesome card, the gold angel is beautiful and the sketch is perfect. I'm going to have to google what Frantage is so I know what you are talking about. I don't even have glimmer mist, I look but haven't a clue which to start with.
