For my Katzelkraft project this week I'm sharing a chipboard letter that I've altered. I found these letters at our local garden centre several weeks ago and I've been waiting for inspiration to strike !
I painted the letter first of all with Gesso and then used Walnut Stain Distress Stains to colour it. I've then used the Fleurs set of stamps and stamped them with Archival Coffee ink. The text is stamped with Archival Black ink and the stamp is from the Nature Quotes set of stamps.
I've used Tim Holtz Ideaology to decorate it and I've edged it with Tissue Tape and then distressed the edges with black acrylic paint.
The rose is made using the Scalloped Flower die by Paper Artsy and I've done some freehand embossing on the metal. I'm entering this project in to the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is embossing ( freehand embossing on the metal rose).
The stamps I've used are available exclusively in the UK from The Craft Barn and from Katzelkraft in France.
