I completed this layout a few weeks ago but life has got in the way - however in the nick of time I have managed to post it for the Kraft+ challenge  :)

This is a photo of our car now and our car when it was raced in the 1970's.

I started by applying gesso to the areas that I was going to colour.  I then applied Kaisercraft and The Crafters Workshop stencils with texture paste. I have used Dylusions Paint - Lemon Zest, Tattered Angels Glimmer mist - Marigold, Lindy Stamp Gang - Yellow Roses of Texas.  I have also used embossing powder - Lindy Stamp Gang - Scotch Breem Yellow with a Kaisercraft stamp.

I have used a Tim Holtz die cut - gadget gears and coated them with black paint and clear embossing powder.   Onto these I have added Steampunk gears and a Tim Holtz Idea-ology arrow.

I have applied washi tape behind the photos and a kaisercraft clear stamp with the embossing powder and black ink

Thanks for stopping by and until next time Happy Crafting :)

Hi all.  Today I have a layout for Lets Get Sketchy which was based on a sketch by Jenessa Franco.  I have flipped the sketch and created this layout:

I have used Graphic 45 Rare Oddities Collection paper. The background stencil is by Stencil Girl and I have used Shimmerz Paints - texturez "artie choked",  Love this texture paste.

Some Close Ups;

Flowers are by iamroses and this chipboard stars embossed in gold.

I have died some ribbon and tied it in a knot for the buttons.  I have stamped with clear embossing powder using a Limor Webber stamp - Splat Butterfly.  Embossed with Ranger embossing powder in Terra Cotta.
