Gettin' Krafty

Have you been checking out the Verve Blog? The Divas have been posting their creations for the September Project Parade Challenge, Gettin' Krafty. . .to use natural fibers. Today is my turn. I LOVE Kraft cardstock! I usually use it in a very "clean" way, but for my card, I decided to "dirty" it up a bit. I sponged the edges of the cardstock with white craft ink and distressed the edges of the focal piece. I added hemp twine tied through the buttons. I think the overall look of this card is very earthy, which is very different from my usual style (at least I think so) :)


Wanna get Krafty, too? Just upload your creation to THIS POST no later than noon on September 30th. If you upload to SCS, please use keyword VVPP06, so we can all drool over your Krafty loveliness! A random participant will be drawn on October 1st to receive $15 in Verve Bucks to spend at the Verve Stamps store! Good luck and go get Krafty! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Birthday Surprise (Verve Stamps); Ink- Whisper White Craft (SU), Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- Kraft (Papertrey Ink), Certainly Celery (SU); Accessories- clear buttons (Foofala), white gel pen, paper piercer, hemp twine; Finished card measures 4.25" square
